Waterfall Garden Park, Seattle
(4.2/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Visit a Japanese garden right in the heart of old Seattle at Waterfall Garden Park, a park created by Masao Kinoshita. Following traditional Japanese design, Kinoshita added one thing: waterfalls. Stroll the grounds and let the numerous surrounding falls lull you with their surreal mountain setting. This attraction once housed the original United Parcel Service office, until it was moved in 1977. Consider bringing a picnic and enjoying a snack at one of the cafe-style tables. Use our Seattle trip generator to add Waterfall Garden Park and other attractions to your Seattle vacation plans.

  • The waterfall garden park in Seattle is a nice little park in the Pioneer Square area. Which is the ideal opportunity for a short break

  • This is a jewel hidden that well can pass unnoticed, is in a place small and half hidden but worth it penalty get to go, rest a little, eat something with that sound of the water that runs.

  • A pleasant surprise in downtown Seattle. You can pass right by it and never know it-we did. Once you enter the gate, there is a sense of tranquility. Take a few minutes and enjoy a bit of serenity.

  • So beautiful , calm heaven in middle of crowded walkway. Takes you all away from the hush-push of the city. Few tables to sit and enjoy your meal or sit and read a book .no one to disturb you at this park. Every city needs this hidden gem.
  • Really cool spot located in a bustling area. Peaceful and quiet. Good place to drink morning coffee and read the paper, or a relaxing lunchtime ;)
  • This is a hidden gem in the middle of the city. Do visit if you are anywhere closer to this waterfalls garden . Beautifully presented park and waterfalls.
  • Neat concept, best utilized as a lunch spot. Not a attraction that I would recommend going out of your way to see if you are visiting in town.
  • Great place, nice LITTLE park with water feature. Some tables and chairs. Very serene place to sit, but very close to the vibrant city.
