Point of Interest Details

Designed by landscape architect Lawrence Halprin and completed in 1990.

"Halprin likened the role of a landscape architect to that of a choreographer, aiming to guide human movement through the environment in positive ways. As a monumental landscape feature linking two spheres together, his Bunker Hill Steps have proven to be a successful and visually striking path for moving people between old and new Los Angeles." —Los Angeles Conservancy
