Man made waterfall near Pioneer Square.

Beautiful waterfall hidden away in pioneer square. Great place to bring a lunch or read a book. Looks just like a real waterfall!

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!

This tiny little park is equipped with a full on waterfall that seems to spring directly from nature, though of course it's entirely man made in the midst of sometimes gritty but more pervasively gentrifying Pioneer Square. It has an aura of peace, of privacy--a sacred quality. I love to sit at lunch when the sun is out and feel... More

A neat place to get away from the street, relax and collect thoughts. I liked just sitting and listening to the water. A good spot to see people take selfies also.

It is not a park per say...But a beautiful cool bag lunch stop or summer cooling place. Lots of outdoor places to sit with small tables. Bushes, trees, and flowers. Some people actually working with laptops. Certainly was not to crowded and was rather quiet while we were there. Lots of cooling falls to stand near and cool off. Sounds... More

Pioneer square is noisy, busy, hectic. Need a break? duck into this little oasis. It's a perfect place to sit and eat your lunch to the soothing sounds of the waterfall.

This place is dead center in the middle of some busy streets. It's very hidden and is really only recognized by the noise of the waterfall. Its a mesmerizing sight seeing the water splash onto the rocks and feeling the water spray in the wind. There are quite a bit of patio tables and chairs for you to have a... More

A delightfully refreshing surprise tucked into Seattle's oldest neighborhood. Take a walk through this corner even if you do not have time to sit and listen to the waterfall.

A quite small, but beautiful and serene area in the Pioneer Square neighborhood. Worth going if you are in the neighborhood.
