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.

[Lakita, 10/20/2013]

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