The southern portion of the St. Vincent Greenway stretches from Forest Park at Lindell to Trojan Park at Etzel and North Skinker Parkway and continues on Stephen Jones Ave to Plymouth Avenue with a direct connection to the Wellston MetroLink Station.
This section of greenway stretches through residential areas and commercial districts and is a popular route for walking and biking to connect with Forest Park on the south as well as the Delmar, Forest Park and Wellston Metrolink stations.  It runs parallel to DeBaliviere from the History Museum to where the paved path turns into Ruth Porter Mall Park. It’s also a treasured green space for getting fresh air, having a picnic or enjoying family and neighborhood get-togethers.
