Very neat little nook, hidden by an iron gate-type wall. The sound of the water drowns out the urban cacophony.

What an awesome surprise! Right in the heart of a busy city there is a peaceful green garden with a beautiful man made waterful. There are lots of trees and flowers. Excellent place to sit and relax.

Very nice small romantic park. It is very relaxing to sit and enjoy your coffee while hearing the water flow smoothly. It is very clean, and has guards. Highly recommended.

Amazing to find this little alcove of waterfalls and pretty flowers in the middle of the city! I love coming to visit this place and always want to stay longer than we have time for. There are tables and chairs and benches so you can...More

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!

We fitted this in to our ‘own’ walking tour of the city. It is a lovely place that is marking history as the first site of UPS! Just a nice place to visit and sit for a few minutes in the madness that a city...More

Nestled in between the International District and Occidental Square, I only stopped for 10 minutes to give my legs some rest, but WOW, what a wonderful space in the city. It was calming to my senses and blocked out the city noise. I'd imagine this...More

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

I believe it is only open Monday to Friday during the day. It is worth a visit, take a coffee or a picnic and sit and enjoy!

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

Here is my tentative itinerary: Day 1: Flight to Seattle Day 2: (We will be getting the City Pass.) Take the monorail to Seattle Center. Visit the Space Needle, EMP, Chihuly Garden & Glass, and Pacific Science Center. Other possible activities include visiting the Center for Wooden Boats, Myrtle Edwards Park, Elliott Bay Waterfront, and/or Olympic Sculpture Park if time allows. (I already know you will all say it won’t!) Day 3: Take the ferry to Bainbridge Island in the...More

We stayed at Pioneer Sq. Best Western (I'll write a review on TA). Had read many negative comments about the area however we had no problem what so ever. It is a VERY close walk to the waterfront and just a bit of a walk to Pike Place. The price was more reasonable than any other hotel so it suited our needs for a couple of nights. We stayed at this hotel for two nights before our Alaska cruise. We LOVED Seattle. What a great place to visit. We only had 1 1/4 days to explore so a...More

Hi, We are going to be in Seattle for two days next week. Concerned about knowing how to get around. We are staying close to the space needle. We will have a car with us, but don't really want to use it unless we need to. These are the things that we may go to or are going to see. We are staying at the Quality Inn Seattle Center, 618 John St, Seattle, WA 98109 - (I know it is not getting the best reviews so we are hoping for the best). Can you let me know what type of transportation...More

I will group your list by things that are closer together: 1. Pike Place Market & Original Starbucks & Gum wall (are all IN the Market) - taking the monorail from Seattle Center would be fun 2. Seattle Great Wheel & Seattle waterfront piers (are all ON the waterfront) - walk there from the Market 3. Underground tour & UPS Waterfall Garden Park & Chinatown (south end of town Pioneer Square and the International District) - either walk or catch a bus or Light Rail for a...More
