The Waterfall Garden Park marks the spot where the United Parcel Service was founded in 1907 by two 19-year olds, James Casey and Claude Ryan. The messenger service was started in the basement of a tavern, and has since flourished to become a postal delivery behemoth. This small, tranquil park features a 22-foot high waterfall cascading over natural granite boulders. The park occupies the site where began a messenger service in 1907 in the basement of a tavern. The Annie E. Casey Foundation, started by James Casey and his siblings in honor of their mother, created the park and maintains it 'in honor of the men and women of United Parcel Service.'
