Brickline Greenway – About

ABOUT

EVERY STEP TELLS A STORY

THE STORY OF THE BRICKLINE GREENWAY

It all starts with a city. St. Louis has hundreds of great treasures—museums, parks, educational, health and art institutions, businesses, neighborhood nooks and crannies and enduring front porches.

And yet, these special places are separated by barriers, real and implied, that fragment our city and keep us from connecting to those treasures and each other. Great Rivers Greenway, the public agency connecting three of the counties in the St. Louis region with greenways for nearly 20 years, has collaborated with local partners and residents to think about how to bring this particular greenway to life in the City of St. Louis.

Through civic engagement, the making of this greenway has become as important as the greenway itself. The Brickline Greenway (formerly called Chouteau Greenway) is about connecting beloved places together with the people who live here to create meaningful experiences every day. It is about giving voice to many who have not had the opportunity to participate in the city’s development. It’s about trying new things and moving forward together.

GREAT RIVERS GREENWAY

THE BRICKLINE IS THE LATEST PROJECT IN GREAT RIVERS GREENWAY’S REGIONAL NETWORK

Residents of the St. Louis region voted for and invested in a clear, bold vision – a dynamic network of connecting rivers, parks and communities, strengthening the social, economic and environmental well-being of our region. Community members proudly invest in, care for and champion greenways for years to come.

There are 45 greenways identified in the overall concept plan for a total of 600 mile network of greenways. Great Rivers Greenway is actively working on 16 of those 45. The map below shows the status of the 128 miles (and counting!) that have been built so far, with another almost 200 miles in planning.
