  • 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. 
  • This is a great place to hang out and have an ice coffee or a cold drink or whatever. You can people watch or listen to the street performers play some music, people watch, read a newspaper, watch the...  read more »
  • This is a nice place to relax and take a break from the waking around the city. At lunch the have multiple lunch trucks line up. The food is great out of any of them, mainly Nosh providing the best Fi...  read more »
  • 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!!
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Lovely, well cared for urban Park. I enjoyed looking at the individual art pieces. Was particularly impressed by the memorial to Seattle fire fallen. It was very moving to see that a city had dedicated an outstanding sculpture to our heroes from the Seattle fire department.
  • It's a nice park/plaza area. Maybe not the nicest part of town. There may have been a few questionable characters around, but overall it was good! They have a big reading area set up too and it looked like some books might have been available to use, but I was there later in the evening so I can't speak for what it might look like in the day when more people are actually there.
