Waterfall Garden – A hidden Gem in Seattle

Back in town for a beautiful weekend day, I was looking for some geocaches. One popped up as “Waterfall Park Cache“. Curious as I am, I had to check it out. Once there I discovered an amazing place with a nice waterfall. You don’t really hear the water rumbling down the artificial waterfall from outside, first once you get closer to the gate or inside you will recognize it.

It’s a nice little place to hang out. There are different levels with benches, tables and seating places to sit down, relax or have your lunch break here. It is quite an impressive place.

The Waterfall Garden Park was built in 1977 by the family that founded the formerly Seattle-based United Parcel Service (UPS). Now operated by the Annie E. Casey Foundation and open to the public free of charge. Park hours are from 8 am to 3:45pm seven days a week. There is also a guard on duty there the whole time to make sure the place stays clean and safe.

On August 28, 2007 UPS employees gathered there at the company’s birthplace to honor, celebrate and reaffirm UPS’s commitment to serving Communities around the world.
