The project is inspired by the magnificent Moraga Mosaic Steps.

Artists Colette Crutcher and Aileen Barr have created a lush mosaic design where butterflies flutter, salamanders slither, and Indian Paint Brush, and poppies climb flights of 148 stairs.

  • Amazing hidden spot! Must see and super mysterious while there is fog. I would recommend it for anyone looking for a small workout and an amazing view of the city. The fog will be there but its okay, really great place to get away from everything.
  • Beautiful steps and surrounding (small) gardens. Sort of a hidden gem in the city. Be ready for a small climb (wear appropriate shoes). Best when not foggy - which can be rare. The park at the top is small but has amazing views
