Lonely Planet review

Splash in the fountain and stay awhile: celebrated sculptor and former WWII internee Ruth Asawa designed these fountains to be lived in, not observed from polite distance. Bronze origami dandelions sprout from polished-pebble pools, with built-in benches for bento-box picnics. On warm days along this wind-tunnel pedestrian block, kids frolic while weary shoppers recharge with footbaths.
