  • The sundial is on a roundabout in the middle of King Street at the intersection of Ladera Drive.

    This is just off Mission Street (at the west end just before turning into Cabrillo Highway US-1) in the Westside district of Santa Cruz.
  • This is a colorful dial raised on a dais so that traffic doesn't hit it. Called "Light Time", the center of the dial has an artful yellow-orange impression of a sun surrounded by planets, moons and even a comet. Hours are marked in two colors for standard and savings time. The gnomon is 3/8 inch steel in the silhouette of a light house beneath the style line acting as a beam of light.
