Great Rivers Greenway is partnering with the City of Brentwood to plan, design and build an expansion of the Deer Creek Greenway to connect with Marshall Avenue Trailhead, parks, businesses and other amenities within Brentwood. This project is a part of Brentwood’s $80 million Brentwood Bound plan to improve Manchester Road, reduce problems caused by Deer Creek flooding, and expand the Deer Creek Greenway. The project will include several water quality, streambank restoration, and open space features as well as a greenway underpass below Manchester Road. This project has been divided into two phases; the first part includes new paved trails within the Brentwood Bound project area and the underpass beneath Manchester Rd. The second phase is the extension of the Deer Creek Greenway along the east side of Brentwood Blvd from Marshall Rd to connect with the new paved trails.
The Deer Creek Greenway expansion will connect from the intersection of Marshall Road and Brentwood Boulevard and will extend north to the Rogers Parkway trail and east along Deer Creek toward the intersection of Hanley and Manchester Roads near the Maplewood MetroLink Station.
When complete, the Deer Creek Greenway Connector will create a paved, accessible walking and biking trail linking Brentwood’s Memorial Park (with sidewalk access to Brentwood Promenade and Brentwood Pointe shopping centers) to Lorraine Davis Park, Barnickel Park and Deer Creek Park in Webster Groves, Deer Creek Park in Maplewood and the Deer Creek Shopping Center at Big Bend Boulevard.
The Deer Creek Connector will also link to these parks and amenities within Brentwood:
- NEW Brentwood Park (with amphitheater, playground & event pavilion)
- Brentwood Sports Complex (Baseball/Softball Fields, Playground, Soccer Field)
- Hanley Park
- Memorial Park
- Oak Tree Park
- Brentwood Swim Club

Construction of phase one is underway and we look forward to joining partners at the City of Brentwood to celebrate the new paved trails and Brentwood Park in June 2023! We are waiting on final approvals for phase 2 (Marshall Rd to Brentwood Park along Brentwood Blvd) and hope to bid it out later this summer with construction beginning by the end of 2023.
