The 16th Avenue Tiled Steps Project has been a neighborhood effort to create a beautiful mosaic running up the risers of the 163 steps located at 16th and Moraga in San Francisco.

Sponsored by the San Francisco Parks Trust, artists Aileen Barr and Colette Crutcher started working on the project in January 2003. The mosaic staircase was completed on August 18, 2004 with the help of over 300 neighbors and over 220 neighbors, who sponsored handmade animal, bird and fish name tiles.

To get to the Mosaic Steps you would take the bus from Golden Gate Park and then get off around 16th avenue. Approaching from 16th avenue you can immediately see the Mosaic Steps as they ascend to Grand View Park.

Stay at Adante Hotel, San Francisco, and get rooms at very affordable rates when you enjoy the 16th Avenue Tiled Steps Project. For more details visit:
