I thought finding this tucked into the busy city amazing. It was pretty peaceful. Near occidental park so not a long walk.

Was looking forward to visiting the idea sounded great to me. As you walk from the pike place area towards this area it grows more sketchy I found myself turning around because there were a bunch of people on the street in front of the entrance and did not want to deal with that on my vacation break.

It was a nice place to take a break as we were walking around! There were families and a few people eating lunch! It was kinda random where it was located, but it was still nice!

Nice little park - it's all man made but a great space to relax, the sound of the waterfall and the big planters with trees and bushes. Numerous people taking their lunch breaks at the little tables. Enclosed on a site of a old UPS building -walled and gated so it is closed after hours.

If you are down in China town, it is definitely worth a stop. A restful and charming park, complete with waterfall, tables and shade. A lot of people like to come and eat their lunch here. It's a nice treat. Clean and pleasant, very restful. You could stay anywhere from 15 minutes to a couple of hours.

Small but feel safe in the middle of Pioneer Square Park as there was a security guard stationed. The garden is small, with small tables and chairs. Excellent place to have lunch bought from nearby restaurants. While having lunch, you could appreciate the waterfall. The noise of the fall actually covers the noise from the city. Tranquillity is what I... More

We walked over a mile to see this through some fairly seedy parts of Seattle only to find it closed and locked with a sign saying winter hours are only until 3:30 pm. First of all I'm not sure July should have winter hours. Secondly, I mean closed at 3:30? Really?

Visited this park today...who would guess you find such a delight in the middle of downtown Seattle. The waterfall is lovely - there are table and chairs there for you to sit and chill out..,we had the place to ourselves and it was a Sunday!

Thank Madjude
