Very neat little nook, hidden by an iron gate-type wall. The sound of the water drowns out the urban cacophony.

What an awesome surprise! Right in the heart of a busy city there is a peaceful green garden with a beautiful man made waterful. There are lots of trees and flowers. Excellent place to sit and relax.

Very nice small romantic park. It is very relaxing to sit and enjoy your coffee while hearing the water flow smoothly. It is very clean, and has guards. Highly recommended.

We stumbled upon this and were pleasantly surprised. This pocket park honors the founding of UPS here. Really relaxing spot.

Wandering around downtown we discovered this refreshingly moist park...Nice respite during a heatwave. Was not aware that it had a significant histricalcontext until I saw the UPS plaque.

The location is the former headquarters of UPS. They took the land and converted it to a lovely waterfall park with patio seating. It’s lovely, peaceful and a nice place to picnic or rest while touring the area. A must see!

We fitted this in to our ‘own’ walking tour of the city. It is a lovely place that is marking history as the first site of UPS! Just a nice place to visit and sit for a few minutes in the madness that a city...More

Nestled in between the International District and Occidental Square, I only stopped for 10 minutes to give my legs some rest, but WOW, what a wonderful space in the city. It was calming to my senses and blocked out the city noise. I'd imagine this...More

I believe it is only open Monday to Friday during the day. It is worth a visit, take a coffee or a picnic and sit and enjoy!
