Visiting a favorite Russian Hill “secret” garden, Redfield Alley between Taylor (east side) and Marion Place above (south side).
Marion used to be a dead-end alley. It starts off as a couple of narrow walks descending from Union. Now it continues down to connect with a neighbor-made garden. It doesn't show that they connect on Google Maps. Go see it in person.

Entering Redfield from Taylor: 2 thru 16
It turns and starts up with two benches, birdhouses, and some steps: 17 thru 37
