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

What a lovely, peaceful spot in the middle of the city! UPS apparently has developed this park for the enjoyment of locals and visitors alike. Don't miss it!

Part of the pioneer neighborhood, this park is very small. On A hot day it would be worth a visit for the shade offered by the many trees.

Hard to believe this is smack dab in an urban environment; sure wish L.A. had something comparable. Beautiful water falls and trees provide a lovely and tranquil environment; great place to bring a bag lunch or just take a break after walking around the city.

Would have been cool if it was open and running. But it was closed and I didn't have the opportunity to see it or enjoy it.

Very cute little place. Not something you wanna make you top attraction but if you are already nearby visiting Klondike Gold Rush Park, CenturyLink Field or King Street Station and you have extra time on your hands - take a break, go there. It is very nice and relaxing.

I'm surprised how few people know about this gem of a park. It is in the Pioneer Square area of Seattle and very small, but the sound of the waterfall and the greenery makes it a wonderful retreat.
