Construction Progressing to Connect River des Peres and Mississippi Greenways!

14316763_857807177688892_6674438549758891619_nConstruction continues on the one mile greenway connection extending the River des Peres Greenway from its current endpoint at Alabama Avenue to  the Mississippi Greenway at River City Casino. When complete, you will be able to walk or ride a bike all the way from the Shrewsbury MetroLink Station to Jefferson Barracks Park!  You’ll also be able to connect to Carondelet Park, River des Peres Park, Loughborough Commons and other neighborhoods and businesses along the way.

The new paved route is separated from the roadway and will meander through Lemay Park and run parallel to River City Casino Boulevard. It will take you beneath the railroad tracks and connect with the current endpoint of the Mississippi Greenway on the north side of the River City Casino parking lot.  When complete the total mileage of the greenway from Shrewsbury Metrolink to Jefferson Barracks Park will be 7.8 miles.
