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.

  • Waterfall Garden Park's always been my favorite hidden gem in Pioneer Square. Tucked just a few blocks south of the Underground Tour at 2nd Ave S. & S. Main St., this little in-city oasis sits on the ...  more »
  • We passed here by chance and so had a quick look. People were having their lunch in here. Quite a surprising garden squeezed into a tiny area. 
  • Visit Pionner Square and forget this place is unforgivable. It is a very cool Area within an area where there are shops all over. Takes long time... care is not by hours and might find it off or closed.

  • 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.
