Your journey of the solar system begins at the SUN located on the Downtown Square in Gainesville. This scale model of the solar system features planet monuments along a 1.8 mile walk that takes you from the downtown square to the shores of Lake Lanier. One of only 13 in the world, this self-guided tour is a wonderful activity for the entire family and a great way to get some exercise too! The trail is an easy to walk concrete path that winds through several of Gainesville's parks. Learn interesting facts about the planets, such as, did you know that there are 67 moons that orbit Jupiter and that the winds on Saturn can reach 1100 miles per hour?! The trail map is available online at https://www.gainesville.org/fullpanel/uploads/files/solar-system-walking-tour-map.pdf.
