We have visited this garden on each of our trips to Seattle (6-8?). It's nice to find such a tiny spot that seems so protected from the city surrounding it. It's walled in so that it's not easy to find, but I think all the lovelier for that. It's a great place to sit quietly, listening to the sound of... More

We made a special trip to pioneer square (very sketchy area of town) to see the waterfall garden. The water was not flowing and the area was tiny. I expected an oasis and experienced a tiny corner with random rocks.

Waterfall Garden park, in Pioneer Square is a hidden gem in the Seattle parks system. Adjacent to the UPS building in Pioneer Square it is a pleasant place to spend a few minutes or perhaps lunch at one of sidewalk style cafe tables in this secluded garden. The small park, perhaps 60' by 80' and surrounded by an iron fence... More

The Waterfall Garden Park is an unexpected oasis in busy Seattle. It is a tranquil area to sit and relax when on a long walking tour of Seattle.

An unexpected oasis in the middle of Seattle, the Waterfall Garden Park is an ideal location not just for a quick sightseeing stop but also for relaxation and enjoying one's peace of mind, which is quite possible even with the tourists' crowds around. There are ample chairs and benches provided for one's comfort. Highly recommended.

I have a different meaning of the words waterfall and garden. We walked to the location where it was suppose to be located and could not find it. A sightseeing guide came by and told us it was across the street. When we got there it was a waterfall and garden area however.......it was located inside a building and the... More

This is located near the Pioneer Square. Free to go into. You literally walk into a closed building where there is a huge waterfall. You can sit at a table and just relax watching the waterfall.

We happened to park on the street next to Waterfall Park -- and wandered through. Lovely spot with an impressive waterfall, with tables and chairs so you can take a break. Definitely stop in.

We decided to stop by here just to check it off our list. The park and falls are a little jewel in the city. Well manicured with diverse gardens and a large waterfall. Shady tables and benches to sit a relax for a bit.

This small park ( 60' x 108') truly beckons on a hot, summer day. It has two levels -- an upper terrace, protected by a transparent trellis roof, and a lower area, open to the sky, that features a 22-foot-high waterfall flowing over granite boulders. The waterfall creates a feeling of being in a forest rather than a major city.... More
