Very small park in an unexpected place with a big waterfall. Gorgeous flowers throughout and tables to eat your lunch at, also rest room's. Hidden behind a wall of lattice work right in Pioneer Square...a free relaxing place to go and take some beautiful pictures!

This would be a great place to go eat lunch if I lived in the area. It's got a lot of wow packed into it's tiny little space. It's about the size of a typical downtown building so it's not very big. But the waterfall is lovely and there are some very nice plant specimens tucked all over.

I had reviewed places to visit and sights to see before going to Seattle on a 3 day trip. I did not see this on any information, yet, in the middle of a warm and tiring day of walking around we found this little oasis. It was cool, relaxing and beautiful. There were only a couple other people there relaxing... More

This tiny corner park is tucked away. If you don't know where it is (Pioneer Square area), you wouldn't know it was there until you were there! Great place for a little lunch, snack or break retreat.

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
