  • Not really sure what I was expecting. The park has a couple totems, some firefighter statues, bocce balls, and ping pong tables. There is also a visitor center and some shops. Lots of tables and chair...  more »
  • This small park is different because there is no grass. However, it is very popular. It has a few large trees which give a nice shade and there are some interesting monuments

  • I thought this park was beautiful. The only problem was a man smoking crack out of a pop can. He didn't bother anyone though, but some people might not want to take their kids.  more »

  • It's a "park" pretty much in name only, during the day the parks dept. sets up tables and chairs, and you can usually find street musicians playing during the day, there are a lot of activities during the day and some fine "yuppie" eateries to grab lunch at. Yes there are a lot of homeless that hang out there, but for the most part they are harmless (I was one for a while so I know them). There are a lot of historic places in downtown seattle, and occidental square is a "must see" to get the whole Seattle experience.
  • Such a beautiful place in the city, I love the buildings and trees. Seems like a hideaway place from all the craziness you get from walking in Seattle.a nice place to come when with friends and visiting, or to watch street performers. Right by the international district too and close to the waterfront!!
  • Best during Art Walk on the first Thursday of the month. Nice in the winter with all the lights up.
  • Great place to spend a lunch or early afternoon - there are food trucks, plenty of tables and chairs, as well as ping pong, bocce, and chess available. There's a small kids' play area and there was live music when I went, great for enjoying the afternoon. The square is surrounded by several shops and art galleries.
  • This park would get five stars were it not for its occasionally rude neighbors - Pioneer Square is a popular homeless gathering spot. The park itself is great, with tons of tables and chairs, sculptures, games and toys for kids, and often live music. I come here for lunch occasionally, though it's a walk, and there are plenty of food options from nearby restaurants and trucks.
