Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Waterfall Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Downtown San Francisco encompasses more than a bustling financial and shopping district; it’s also home to Yerba Buena Gardens and its man-made memorial waterfall, an inspirational diversion in the heart of the city.
The 20-foot-high, 50-foot-wide sheet of water that washes over the stone and glass memorial to Martin Luther King Jr. in Yerba Buena Gardens radiates power, peace, and hope. The lack of a monumental natural setting doesn’t hinder this waterfall’s ability to inspire: It invokes turbulence and cleansing, both central to the legacy of the great man it honors, and it brings people together, no matter their own legacies, which was what the great man wanted."
