Uranus on the Planet Walk.

Planet Walk

The Delmar Loop Planet Walk is located along the Delmar Loop, an arts and culture district of St. Louis --you can take a hike around the solar system in just a few blocks! The Planet Walk is a scale model of the solar system. Since it is permanent city installation, you can visit it any time. It took us a while to figure out why we saw a sign for "URANUS" on the sidewalk of Delmar Blvd, which is a rather busy thoroughfare.

The Planet Walk is conveniently near similarly "star" themed attractions in the area, such as the St. Louis Walk of Fame and the Moonrise Hotel.

The Planet Walk was built by amateur astronomy buff Stephen Walker in 2009. In keeping with modern scientific dogma, Pluto has been excluded.
