Waterfall Garden Park Tours

1 review
Waterfall Garden Park
Seattle is surrounded by plenty of incredible nature vistas and beautiful sceneries, but visitors don’t necessarily need to go much further than Pioneer Square to find a bit of nature in a peaceful garden setting. The Waterfall Garden Park was planned by the Japanese designer Masao Kinoshita to commemorate the birthplace of the United States Parcel Service (the UPS) and is one of Seattle’s best hidden secrets. Tucked away between Main Street and Second Avenue, the small oasis is a modern interpretation of a Japanese garden with lots of granite, brick, steel and potted plants surrounding the 22-foot-high, man-made waterfall splashing over huge rocks. 

The roar of the waterfall and the softer tinkle of the surrounding stream drown out all the noise of Seattle’s concrete jungle and form a very compact, albeit effective urban oasis. Many a local can probably attest to the calming effects of the lush foliage covering up skyscrapers and streetscapes and the white noise drowning out the sound of traffic outside. Especially over lunch time, business people come here for a break and two terraces with wrought iron chairs and tables offer plenty of space for picnics or a quiet moment in the midst of the city.

Practical Info

Waterfall Garden Park is tucked into a corner between South Main Street and 2nd Avenue South and can be reached by walking or taking a number of public transport options. The park opens daily from 8am to 5:30pm. 
Address: 219 2nd Avenue South, Seattle, Washington 98104, USA
