The goal of this project is to extend the Deer Creek Greenway from its current endpoint at Big Bend Blvd. to connect to the River des Peres Greenway at the intersection of Ellendale and Canterbury in the City of St. Louis. It will create a greenway connection between the cities of Brentwood, Webster Groves, Maplewood and St. Louis with connections to Deer Creek Shopping Center, the Maplewood business district, surrounding neighborhoods, multiple parks and the Shrewsbury Lansdowne MetroLink station.
The proposed expansion will extend from the Deer Creek Greenway’s current endpoint at the Deer Creek Center just west of the intersection of Big Bend Blvd. and Oxford Ave. The proposed route follows Oxford Avenue to Sussex Avenue, extends west along the north side of Greenwood Blvd to Canterbury Avenue where it will connect to the River Des Peres Greenway at Ellendale Avenue (by Francis R. Slay Park).

We are working with the community to design the greenway throughout 2020-2023. Partners have approved the project and it has just been awarded $3 million in federal funds from the 2022 Congestion Mitigation Air Quality (CMAQ) round of funding. Design and engineering will continue thru 2023, easement acquisition in 2024 and construction is anticipated for 2025. We’ll also be working with the City of Webster Groves to develop a small pocket park/pedestrian trailhead at Big Bend and Oxford (formerly McDonalds) that will connect to the future Deer Creek Greenway through Maplewood.
