Walking around Pioneer Square we stumbled on this small, peaceful beautiful park. People were eating lunch, drinking coffee or just looking at the fountain. We didn't stay long as we weren't sure where we were and we were headed to a restaurant when we took...More

What a lovely place to sit and relax in the centre of Seattle. Beautifully looked after and the staff member we met was so friendly and interesting to speak with. We sat for ages enjoying the waterfall, as did many others - visitor and local.

Surprising peaceful waterfall in the midst of the big city. A peaceful place to sit for a few minutes; saw many people eating their takeout lunches here

this is a nice little respite from the chaos of the city, it is small, and not even really a "park" in the traditional sense at all, but it is well worth visiting anyways to come here and relax for a bit, have a coffee...More

We were on a tour of Seattle when our driver took us to historic Pioneer Square. He pointed out Waterfall Garden Park, telling us that is was to commemorate the first UPS headquarters. The waterfall was in a beautiful setting. This is a very small...More

This place the epitome of a hidden gem. Even most that live in Seattle don't know about this place. Grab some lunch from one of the food trucks in Occidental Park, make the walk to this spot, and enjoy one of the most tranquil places...More

I doubt you will find street parking easily - for any size vehicle. Seattle is very congested and we ended up always having to park in a parking garage. If you are an early riser, you can get a better price in some garages... More
