"Great old-town charm, scary after sundown"

Occidental Park lies just on the other side of Pioneer Square, Seattle's old town. The buildings and architecture in this area are incredible and the outdoor structures and art provide downtown with some beautiful sights. Occidental Park sits between Washington and Main streets, offering a wide open area to walk, tables to sit, restaurants to eat and a varied array of shops up and down Pioneer Square. The park is also at the beginning of the Seattle Art Walk, a stretch of art galleries in the downtown area. Commonly used by both downtown workers and transients, the park can be a little intimidating after the sun goes down. Generally, there are plenty of people enjoying the night life offered by the restaurants, bars and clubs in Pioneer Square, though few are in Occidental Park, making it a little less populated than the surrounding streets. On-street parking is available, though prime real estate at all hours. For the architecture and layout of the park, it is very enjoyable. But the unsafe feeling does present a drawback.
