Description   EN   

This is a very neat park located just off the B&A Trail. There is a very nice sculpture representing our sun here. There are also several information signs here as well. This is also the start of a scale representation of our solar system heading south from here on the B&A Trail. A couple of the signs are missing though. I have seen many of the planets, but never in the same walk, as that is still a long walk. Please consider continuing the trail for several more caches.

The B&A Trail is about 14 miles long and paved with asphalt. It parallels MD Route 2 most of its length. There is a connector at the northern end to put you on the BWI Trail which circles BWI Airport. The B&A Trail is a very popular trail for walkers, runners, inline skating and bicycling. I walk/run a portion of it for exercise starting at the Marley Station Mall in Glen Burnie.

Parking is available very near the cache location. Remember to bring a camera or something to write with.

You must physically visit this location to take credit for this cache.

The confimation code is the first word on the second line of the left most cement plaque just a few feet west of the sculture. The code word is case sensitive.

I came by to grab a nearby micro cache and decided to go on a brief tour of the solar system. Cool sculpture.

The youngest geokid says the statue is BEAUTIFUL! Sadly it looks like one of the crystals is missing.

Had some free time for caching before heading to the gym, and this was one of the stops. I used to ride my bike down this trail a lot, and don't remember ever seeing this. Thanks for the cache!

Out early for some car maintenance in Glen Burnie and remembered this one was nearby.  Great place. I have seen a few of the planets but never walked or biked the whole trail.

3146 / 72.  Headed out this morning to grab some OCUS / TC caches, before having to get ready for my sister's weddding, this afternoon. 

Great sculpture and informational displays.  Along with One Large Gas Bubble, this Sound like the start of a great series.  This was my fourth cache of the day, all from this same CO.

When I found the namesake cache, a while back, I was tempted to consider listing virtual here, myself.

Thanks and Happy Trails!
