Amidst the hustle and bustle (and bums and drug dealers) of Seattle sits tiny little Waterfall Garden Park. The original home office of United Parcel Service. It's a quick hike from 1st Ave. S. (Pioneer Square) past a small monument to firefighters and is a...More

Sadly, the locale for this is about as bad as it gets in Seattle. Drug and hobo row, sorry it is what it is. Please skip, nothing really to see inside either.

What a lovely place to sit and relax in the centre of Seattle. Beautifully looked after and the staff member we met was so friendly and interesting to speak with. We sat for ages enjoying the waterfall, as did many others - visitor and local.

Surprising peaceful waterfall in the midst of the big city. A peaceful place to sit for a few minutes; saw many people eating their takeout lunches here

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
