Enter this shady courtyard in Pioneer Square and you'll feel miles away from the urban bustle outside. A 22-foot waterfall drowns out all street noise, lending the lush space an air of calm. Mature shrubs and Japanese maples planted alongside the iron enclosing fence block garden visitors from view.
Sit and rest awhile at one of the bistro tables scattered throughout the garden. This is a clean, well-kept, and well-swept place - a secret spot well worth visiting on a walk through the district.
This is a great spot for weary kids (and their parents) to rest or blow off steam. Tables and chairs invite picnicking. The garden is privately maintained and has an attendant on-site.
From 1-5 (north- and southbound): Take the James Street exit. Turn west toward the water. Turn left on 2nd Avenue. Immediately angle right at the "Y". Cross S Washington Street, staying on 2nd Avenue. The Garden is one block ahead, across from the fire station. Public transportation: Served by more Metro bus routes than we can list; check Metro's trip planner for specific routes. Also served by the Waterfront Streetcar.
