Urban Hike

The School of Landscape Architecture’s ASLA Student Chapter ‘Urban Hikes’ continue! On Saturday November 16th, students and instructors took to the hills of San Francisco and over two of its most famous peaks. Telegraph Hill, and Russian Hill.

Their first stop was Levi’s Plaza designed by world renowned Landscape Architect Lawrence Halprin, where water is used in trickles, rushes, gurgles, and crashes in order to remove one from the hustle and bustle of the city. A good gluteal and quadricep workout later, the group made its way to Washington Square park, and finally to the SF Art Institute in Russian Hill where they were welcomed by Diego Rivera murals and breathtaking views of our beautiful city.

Stay tuned and join the ASLA student Chapter for their next Urban Hike!
