Deer Creek Greenway Master Plan

Master Plan
This greenway’s master plan traverses the cities of St. Louis, Maplewood, Webster Groves, and Brentwood, connecting with the River des Peres Greenway in the City of St. Louis along Deer and Shady Creeks. .

Current Status
Deer Creek Greenway: Deer Creek Park currently links the Webster Groves side of Deer Creek Park to Maplewood’s popular “Rocket Park.” It also parallels Deer Creek on the eastern side of Deer Creek Shopping Center.

Future Connections
Funds have been allocated and final designs are near completion to expand the existing Deer Creek Greenway to Webster Groves’ Lorraine Davis Park. An open house was held on September 8th, 2016 to showcase plans and answer questions about the project.  Click here for more details about the project and to see presentation boards from the open house. We are working towards final approvals with  the goal of construction starting in 2017. Next, we’re engineering to connect this with the River des Peres Greenway at Francis R. Slay Park in the City of St. Louis. This project was awarded a Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement grant (CMAQ) to help fund it. We are in the process of executing a contract for design work beginning in 2017.
