Waterfall Garden Park Tours

star-5
5 Reviews
Waterfall Garden Park
Tiny Waterfall Garden Park, in Seattle’s Pioneer Square neighborhood, offers a peaceful respite from the surrounding streets, with tables, chairs, and benches that invite a relaxing visit. Planted with trees and flowers native to Japan, the park commemorates the original location of the United Parcel Service.

The Basics
Walking distance from key landmarks in Pioneer Square and Downtown, Waterfall Garden Park measures just 60 feet by 80 feet (18 meters by 24 meters), but it’s become a beloved spot to find quiet in a busy area. United Parcel Service was known as the American Messenger Company when it was founded here; now the company’s former location is a worthwhile stop on a day of exploring.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Bring a coffee or picnic to enjoy in the park, which has a handful of tables and chairs.
  • Look for the plaque on the park grounds marking the 100th anniversary of UPS.
  • Plenty of shade makes this a comfortable place even on hot days.
  • Access to the park is through a gate but admission is free.
 
How to Get There
Waterfall Garden Park is located at 219 Second Avenue S, in the historic Pioneer Square neighborhood. Buses stop at Second Avenue S and First Avenue S. There is limited street parking in the neighborhood, but multiple paid-parking garages are a short distance away, including a lot at 200 Second Avenue S.
 
When to Get There
Open Monday through Friday from 8am to 3:45pm, the park is busiest during lunchtime hours, when workers come to enjoy their meals in the shade. A security guard oversees the entrance gate, which is locked after Waterfall Garden Park closes for the day.
 
Where to Find Coffee Near Waterfall Garden Park
In java-loving Seattle, it’s no surprise that there is a long list of coffee shops within a block or two of Waterfall Garden Park. Grabbing a steaming cup of locally roasted coffee might be the perfect way to enjoy this quiet spot. Check out nearby Elm Coffee Roasters, on Second Avenue; Convoy Coffee, on Second Avenue; or the Cherry Street Public House, on Occidental Avenue.
Address: 219 2nd Avenue South, Seattle, Washington 98104, USA

Seattle Scandals History Tour

star-5
It is the only tour in Seattle that has more than 10 stops (and therefore more than 10 stories) in Pioneer Square. All the other tour companies focus on one small detail, and they will go to only one, maybe two locations at the most. But, we go to at least 8 locations on each one of our tours, and guests will hear at least 8 different stories of Seattle's fascinating history.
