The Hidden Garden Of Pike Place
In Seattle’s famous market behind people shouting to each other at the shops and fish being thrown between fishermen there is a hidden garden, quiet and secluded. The serene garden is above the tops of the waterfront’s buildings and gives a beautiful view of the cascades, the sound and of course the ferris wheel. I’m here to tell you how to get there if you’re visiting. Or if you’re a local and haven’t found it.
Here are the four pictures that will get you there…
At the end of the market near the corner of 1st and Pike there is a famous fish stand where the men working there throw the fish to each other and call out loudly. If you can’t hear them from a mile away find the gold pig statue and you will be facing it.
Facing Pike Place Fish Co. in the same way as the picture take a left towards Market Spice. Then, facing Market Spice, take a right towards the neon arrows. Follow the arrows and at your first opportunity to take a left, take a left. Walk down the hallway and out of the double doors and you will be in the garden. You can find more pictures than the ones here right here.
