Located just half a block from the Vulcan
Steps, the Saturn Street Stairs connect Ord Street on the lower end
to Saturn Street on the upper. A little over a block long, the steps
wander through gardens cared for by the neighbors who live on either side.
Like the Vulcan Steps, many of the houses on the Saturn Stairs are accessible
only by foot.
The Saturn Stairs are constructed from a mix of materials.
On the upper and lower ends, the stairs are concrete. In the center,
lumber and packed earth form part of the stairs. Terraces complete
with benches and views of the city offer comfortable resting points.
When exploring these stairways, I recommend you go up
Vulcan Steps, travel over to the Levant Street Stairs, and then make
your way back down the Saturn Street Steps.
