Nice, quiet place, pretty trees and flowers, beautiful falls. I saw tables but didn't realized it's not a cafe. Went to a nearby coffee shop and came back to enjoy my cup of coffee and pastry in peace and tranquility.

Powerful sound of the waterfalls, while you sit at one of the many bistro tables they have set up around this cute little garden/park. I didn't care for the area much...bit uncomfortable (homeless people were there...but they seemed harmless) but when you find this place, you just can't believe how peaceful it is (even with the roar of the waterfall!)

I found the Waterfall Garden by accident. I was wandering around the neighbor, heard the splashing water and was intrigued. It was rather frosty and rainy when I was visiting, but I imagine that this would be a nice place to take a break or eat lunch on a warm day. But even on a cloudy day it was lovely... More

First, let me say this park is quite small. Some people have been disappointed by this. Second, people have said that the neighborhood the park is in is 'sketchy'. I didn't see this when I visited. The park is actually quite close to several attractions including the Underground Tour, the Smith Tower and Occidental park. It was a little hard... More

Unbelievable this beautiful garden in the middle of the city. Well worth the visit. Lots of other things to see with the one block area

This small garden that is tucked away is home of the original UPS delivery men who use to peddle bikes around Seattle making deliveries. Take a picnic or stop by one of the many coffee or ice cream stores and pick up a cup java or a gelato and enjoy the 25 foot waterfall that blocks the sounds of the... More

We stumbled upon this place when we were walking around in downtown. Close to Occidental Park. I learned that this was the first place of United Parcel Service. There is a really nice mini-waterfall and some mini-gardens surrounding it with tables for people to sit and relax. There ewas a wedding ceremony when we were there! Great urban park...

Great little park. What a great place to bring a sandwich for a city picnic. Absolutely beautiful waterfall in a floral dell with several little tables. Just a few hundred square feet that provides a little of nature in the heart of the city. I wouldn't want to go there to see it by moonlight but seems safe enough during... More

a little corner park oasis with a huge waterfall, some smaller waterfall sculptures, and lots of tables and benches to sit and meditate, eat, visit, etc. Very clean. the back of an apt building overlooks it and i was thinking how wonderful it would be to live there with the sound of water. I found a pamphlet about this park... More

This is the site of the first United Parcel Service location. Started with a couple of kids on bikes. A waterfall, trees and benches were put there to commemorate the spot. The waterfall is well done and inviting to sit around.
