Legacy Park to Dardenne Park
The Dardenne Greenway (where it crosses under Mexico Road) will be closed from July 8th through early 2017. This will allow for the construction of a separated path for walking and riding bikes on the south side of the existing bridge. While this closure impacts only a very small portion of the greenway, you will not be able to access Mexico Road from the greenway. If you want to access Mexico Road from the south, you will need to detour over to the sidewalk on West Sunny Hills Boulevard through the Ohmes Farms subdivision and follow that route up to the traffic signal at West Sunny Hills and Mexico Road.
The Dardenne Greenway winds along Dardenne Creek in St. Charles County, and links together hundreds of acres of parks as well as neighborhoods, communities, businesses and schools. There is a paved trail in the greenway that makes it easy for you to to leave your car behind and walk or ride to athletic fields, a dog park, St. Charles Community College or to just get outside and enjoy some fresh air!Read More
