About a block long, the Saturn Street Steps connect Saturn and Ord Street. As you enter, you'll spot the many gardens that border the steps all the way down. They landscaping is maintained by local volunteers. There are tons of plants, flowers, trees, and bushes to admire as you venture down the stairs. There are also some benches on the way down (or up) that you can rest and recharge on. This place is very special and you won't find this in guide books!
The Saturn Street Steps Open Space is owned by the San Francisco Recreation and Park Department.
