This small garden that is tucked away is home of the original UPS delivery men who use to peddle bikes around Seattle making deliveries. Take a picnic or stop by one of the many coffee or ice cream stores and pick up a cup java or a gelato and enjoy the 25 foot waterfall that blocks the sounds of the roadways that surround this small park.

A lovely place to enjoy some tranquility or visit with friends surrounded by the sound of falling water and lunch vegetation. A must see!

We stumbled upon this place when we were walking around in downtown. Close to Occidental Park. I learned that this was the first place of United Parcel Service. There is a really nice mini-waterfall and some mini-gardens surrounding it with tables for people to sit and relax. There ewas a wedding ceremony when we were there! Great urban park...

Great little park. What a great place to bring a sandwich for a city picnic. Absolutely beautiful waterfall in a floral dell with several little tables. Just a few hundred square feet that provides a little of nature in the heart of the city. I wouldn't want to go there to see it by moonlight but seems safe enough during the day. While there is no food there, there are many places to grab a sandwich in the area and bring there.

a little corner park oasis with a huge waterfall, some smaller waterfall sculptures, and lots of tables and benches to sit and meditate, eat, visit, etc. Very clean. the back of an apt building overlooks it and i was thinking how wonderful it would be to live there with the sound of water. I found a pamphlet about this park and my husband and i walked over from the Pike's Mkt area where we were staying. i read it was donated by the founder of UPS in 1977 to the people of Seattle. we then discovered Pioneer Square around the corner which is a historical district full of landmarks and eclectic shops and restaurants.

This is the site of the first United Parcel Service location. Started with a couple of kids on bikes. A waterfall, trees and benches were put there to commemorate the spot. The waterfall is well done and inviting to sit around.
