St. Charles County residents and stakeholders said that a new greenway linking the existing Dardenne Greenway at St. Charles Community College with the KATY Trail State Park should be a high priority project. This was identified through the St. Charles County Greenway Master Plan. Great Rivers Greenway is working with community members, local municipalities, and other stakeholders to plan this new greenway named for Baltic Creek that runs parallel to a large portion of this route.
The overarching goal is to connect the existing Dardenne Greenway at St. Charles Community College, Veterans Tribute Park, and the KATY Trail. This greenway will likely be completed in three phases and will stretch more than four miles from end to end. The northern section will parallel Mid Rivers Mall Drive to Highway 364/94. The middle section will follow an existing paved trail (with new signage) along Pitman Hill Road to Veterans Tribute Park. There are two options for the southern section linking Veterans Tribute Park to the KATY Trail that will need additional study to determine a preferred route.

Thanks to the hundreds of community members and other stakeholders who have shared ideas and feedback to date! The master plan for this greenway is complete. Our next step will be to develop a conceptual design for the 1.4-mile northern segment from the Dardenne Greenway at Mid Rivers Mall Drive to 364/94 in 2024.
Stay tuned for opportunities in 2024 to share your feedback on the design! (Sign up for email updates below)
