Waterfall Garden Park, Seattle

#19 of 48 in Parks in Seattle
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.

  • Beautiful hidden gem in Pioneer Square, right in the middle of downtown Seattle. Minutes away from transit stations in Pioneer Square and the International District. Cool and shady and secluded from traffic, with a small waterfall and other features. Great place to stop in if you're walking around the area or work nearby.
  • If you plan on going to Occidental Park you Must stop here! My husband and I picked up food at a local place in Occidental Park to go and walked here to enjoy it! what a great place to stop and enjoy lunch! We loved it so much! Such a Diamond of Peace inside a bustling city!
  • This is a very creative and cozy little place to enjoy waterfalls. I imagine that during the growing season the trees and plants offer plenty of shade and scenery.
  • Amazingly beautiful man made "falls" in the city. Water drowns out the surrounding city noise, and there is covered seating to enjoy a meal
  • A beautiful, serene oasis in the city. Free to the public, plenty of seating.
