Spanish Steps

Tucked away amongst magnolias, eastern red cedars, oaks and flowering trees is a unique gathering place in the Kalorama neighborhood of Washington, D.C. The Spanish Steps, as this park has come to be known, is a series of steps and terraces that occupies the roadway of 22nd St. NW between S St. NW and Decatur Pl. NW and transforms the street into a romantic, urban enclave. Designed during the City Beautiful era, this secluded park is a product of the undulating topography of the Kalorama-Sheridan.

There is another step street in a park in DC close to the Omni Shoreham Hotel. It connects Woodland Drive, NW with 29th Street which leads down to Normanstone Drive.
