As I walked up the steps of Saturn Street on Thanksgiving morning, I couldn’t help but feel embarrassed. My cousin and I were on a walking tour of San Francisco and our final destination was Mount Olympus Park – a place I had never even heard of.
I was born and raised in San Franciscan and this park, elevated 570 feet above sea level, is considered the geographic center of the city. Not only had I not heard of it, but I had trouble finding it. We had to refer to our map, taken from the book “Urban Trails: San Francisco” by Alexandra Kenin, to help us solve the puzzle of the steps that lead to Mount Olympus.
