We found a delightful little spot in Seattle located in Pioneer Square called Waterfall Garden Park. When you walk through the gate you step into an urban oasis, as you are greeted with the sound of the waterfall which drowns out the noise of the city. It is a perfect place to sit and relax after site-seeing. A lot of people who work nearby bring their lunches here and I understand it can be pretty crowded around lunch-time. We were lucky enough to go mid-afternoon when there was only one other person sitting quietly in a corner. It is a small area but is very picturesque and considering the waterfall is man-made, I thought the original designers did an excellent job of turning this into a secret garden-like atmosphere.
You know those brown trucks that bring your parcels to the door? We are at the birthplace of The United Parcel Service (UPS).
