April 28 Groundbreaking Kicks Off Deer Creek Connector Project
On April 28, 2022 we joined our partners at the City of Brentwood to break ground on the Deer Creek Greenway extension! The project is extending the existing Deer Creek Greenway from the intersection of Marshall Road and Brentwood Boulevard 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.
This project is a part of the city’s $80 million “Brentwood Bound” storm water mitigation plan for the Deer Creek flood plain that will reduce flooding, improve Manchester Rd. and enhance green space. Learn more about Brentwood Bound here.
