Lincoln Park Steps

I’ve written previously about my recent visit to the golf course in San Francisco’s Lincoln Park; my main purpose in going there had been to locate the Kong Chow Sojourner Tombs. But I was very happy to realize that on this outing I could also cross a second item off my list, the nearby Lincoln Park Steps. The steps themselves have been there since the early 1900s, but it was only in 2007 that they were given a well-deserved and colorful upgrade.

The day I visited was quite foggy and cool — which I appreciated since I had a fair bit of walking to do. The low clouds did keep me from enjoying the full panorama of the city from the top of the stairs, but there were plenty of other fine sights to look at.

The spires of Holy Virgin Cathedral on Geary Street

Presidio Landmark Apartments, once the 1930s-era public hospital

They are far less colorful, but I was completely charmed by the stairs behind the Lincoln Park Golf Course club house.

And I found plenty of color as I strolled back toward Geary Street and discovered a bit of crochet “yarn bombing” in front of the Pine United Methodist Church on 33rd Avenue.
