Escape to Seattle’s Waterfall Garden Park

Among the concrete, muck, and history in downtown Seattle’s Pioneer Square is a mini getaway.  A calm, peaceful place to escape.  You probably wouldn’t just stumble upon this hidden park.  You’d need to know what you were looking for, but once you go for the first time, my guess is that you’ll want to come back again and again.

Bergen loves water.  He’s intrigued by the falling streams, the sound, the light reflecting in the droplets, all of it, except of course the cold he feels after getting wet. He’d be happy in the bathtub with the faucet turned on, but I thought taking him the Seattle’s Waterfall Garden Park would be a little bit more fun for the both of us.

The United Parcel Service’s original office was located here, and in 1967, the Waterfall Park was created, and given as a gift to the City of Seattle.  I think Seattle is pretty thankful for a beautiful place to sip a cup of coffee, enjoy a picnic lunch, or just entertain a little toddler.

Info to Know:

  • The Waterfall Garden Park is located in Seattle’s Pioneer Square district (South of Downtown)

    • Thank you!
      Nice! What a perfect lunch spot to frequent. My husband works close by…I’m thinking his stress level would go down exponentially if he did the same 🙂
