The step risers have been tiled over. To get the full effect of the mural look at the steps from the bottom. You can climb to the top and get a great view of the Sunset District and great views of the Pacific Ocean

This is strictly a residential neighborhood. The nearest restaurant is 3 blocks down the hill to the left. You can enjoy the plants while the kids play and keep an eye on your vehicle.
