16th Avenue Tiled Steps

Public Art in Golden Gate Park & the Avenues

Off the beaten path on the western side of Twin Peaks, these 163 mosaic-tiled steps depicting local wildlife were a community effort involving 300 neighbors and led by local artists Aileen Barr and Colette Crutcher. Mornings they take a pounding from cross-trainers, but evenings are for sunset-watching romantics. Make it to the park at the top of the steps for stunning city views.
