The Space Walk

SPACE WALK is an after dark immersive visual art installation designed to convey the true scale of our solar system, both in terms of the size of the planets and their distances from the sun. Following a linear path spanning 3/4 of a mile and at a scale of 3.5 Billion:1, this walkable installation replicates the vastness of space in a tangible way.


Miniature planets are hand-painted in realistic detail with blacklight acrylic and lit with solar powered UV lights after dusk. 


SPACE WALK intends to be the most realistic to-scale outdoor model of our solar system in the world and lives along the Mill Greek Greenway path at Salway park, in Cincinnati, OH.

Hannaford Playground

A small hillside playground area on Mellwood Avenue, complete with picnic tables.

Community Garden

The Spring Grove Village Community Garden is an important resource to the neighborhood, with over 20 gardeners growing wide variety of garden crops, from March through October every year. The garden was initiated in 1999, with help from the Civic Garden Center, and is now overseen by Mrs. Nannie Oliver, in cooperation with the Spring Grove Village Community Council. Gardeners share the fruits of their labor with neighbors, local churches, and at monthly community council meetings.
