Projects In Progress

Connection to River des Peres Greenway

Great Rivers Greenway has been working with municipal partners on a project to connect Deer Creek Greenway from Deer Creek Park and shopping center through the cities of Maplewood and St. Louis to connect to the River des Peres Greenway.

Future Connections


We have been working with municipal partners to extend the Deer Creek Greenway on the east through the cities of Maplewood and St. Louis, and on the north through the city of Brentwood. More information about the east segment connecting to through the cities of Maplewood and St. Louis to the River des Peres Greenway is located here.

Deer Creek Greenway Connector

Great Rivers Greenway has joined the City of Brentwood to plan, design and construct a connection between the Deer Creek Greenway and Brentwood’s Rogers Parkway. The Deer Creek Connector will provide a walking and biking link from the intersection of Marshall Road and Brentwood Boulevard and will extend ¾ miles north to the city’s Rogers Parkway trail. This project is a part of the city’s $80 million “Brentwood Bound” storm water mitigation plan for the Deer Creek flood plain and will incorporate numerous water quality, stream bank, restoration and open space features, as well as an underpass below Manchester Road to keep people walking and biking separate from vehicle traffic.  Once design for this project is complete, construction is anticipated to begin in mid-2021. More information about the north segment connecting through the city of Brentwood to the Rogers Parkway Trail coming soon!
