Monarch Chesterfield Levee
Effective April 4, 2020, the City of Wildwood will close the John L. LeCave Trailhead that serves the Missouri Greenway. No parking is allowed. The greenway is still open in this location for walking, biking and running.
Two separate 200-foot sections of the Missouri Greenway: Monarch Chesterfield Levee will be closed beginning January 14, 2020 to accommodate Monarch-Chesterfield Levee District’s improvements to pump stations. The rest of the greenway will be open. One section is expected to be closed through April 2020 and the other section is expected to be closed through mid-July 2020. Note that these timelines are weather dependent. Click here to learn more about the closures and to view maps.
This greenway offers three segments which will eventually connect for a 17-mile loop. There is ample parking for this stretch of sunny greenway atop the levee just behind the Taubman Prestige Outlets. Grab a bite or go shopping in addition to exploring the greenway! Across the greenway/levee from the outlets, there is a wetland you can explore with its own natural path trails. You can also park in the northwest section of the St. Louis Premium Outlet parking lot to access the greenway near the connection to the Boone Bridge.Read More
