Building upon your input

THANK YOU to the 6,200+ people who took the time to share their thoughts in Dec 2020/Jan 2021! Take a look at those results right here.

Since then, we have analyzed previous greenway plans in the St. Louis region and similar projects across the country. We are listening to community members, stakeholders, and Great Rivers Greenway staff and Board members to better understand greenway values and priorities throughout the region. We convened workshops with a Community Advisory Committee, Conservation Technical Advisory Committee, and Public Safety Technical Advisory Committee to develop recommendations.

20 Years & Counting

We’re a public agency that was formed by a vote of the people in St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County in 2000 to connect the region together with greenways. With your help and with many partners, we’re bringing the community’s vision to life – there are 128 miles of greenways and counting for you to enjoy, making this an even more vibrant place to be.

Here’s an overview of our First 20 Years:

With your collaboration, more and more greenways come to life every year. Click here for a larger map to see what’s built and what’s coming.
