The Fee Fee Greenway parallels Fee Fee Creek, and lies within the Missouri River watershed. It is a suburban greenway that extends from the Maryland Heights Recreation Complex to Creve Coeur Lake.
As part of the overall River Ring Master Plan, the Fee Fee Greenway will serve as a link between the Centennial Greenway and Missouri Greenway. It will also offer a continuous three mile connection between the Maryland Heights recreation complex and Creve Coeur County Park near Marine Avenue.
The Fee Fee Greenway currently extends one mile (paved) from the Maryland Heights recreation complex through McKelvey Woods Nature Park to Fee Fee Creek.
Design of the two mile greenway extension (paved) to Creve Coeur Park is complete. An Open House was held January 18 at the Maryland Heights Government Center.

Site preparation to extend the existing paved trail in the Fee Fee Greenway an additional 2 miles along Crystal Springs Quarry Golf Club, where it will connect to the trails in Creve Coeur Park (near Marine Avenue) has begun.
Following guidelines provided by the United States Fish and Wildlife Service, the initial project work in March 2017 is focused on removing trees along the planned greenway path. These efforts will ensure the trees are down prior to the summer months when bats – including the federally endangered Indiana Bat – begin to roost in the trees following their hibernation period. While the plans were designed to reduce the number of trees impacted by construction, there will be more than 316 new trees of 14 different native species planted as specified by the project’s landscaping plan.
Construction on this extension is expected to be complete in Spring/Summer of 2018.
