Waterfall Garden Park, Seattle

4.2
#20 of 65 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.

  • I traveled for two hours going to the UPS Waterfall Garden at Seattle and I really enjoyed the waterfall. The park is small but gorgeous and majestic. There are plenty of places to sit down and relax. I recommend coming here early to enjoy the sunrise.
  • This place is amazing in a subtle way. The plants and trees and flowers are in great condition and arranged so nicely.
