We stumbled upon this and were pleasantly surprised. This pocket park honors the founding of UPS here. Really relaxing spot.

Wandering around downtown we discovered this refreshingly moist park...Nice respite during a heatwave. Was not aware that it had a significant histricalcontext until I saw the UPS plaque.

The location is the former headquarters of UPS. They took the land and converted it to a lovely waterfall park with patio seating. It’s lovely, peaceful and a nice place to picnic or rest while touring the area. A must see!

Very nice. Not crowded. Wish I had spent more time there. If I could do it again I would have brought a lunch down there.

The Waterfall Garden Park is one of the best-kept secrets in the Seattle downtown. I've been during every season of the year, usually with coffee or a snack in hand from a nearby Pioneer Square shop and it never disappoints. Check it out!!!

We were in Pioneer Square to see the Underground so came by the Waterfall Garden Park. The story behind it is interesting. Research it before you go. We didn't stay very long, but glad we went. We went to the Underground and the Klondike Gold...More

No. It's just a tiny little pocket park near Pioneer Square.

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
