Deer Creek Greenway
Deer Creek Park to Lorraine Davis Park
A portion of the greenway greenway in Maplewood’s Deer Creek Park will be closed to accommodate a project to stabilize the Deer Creek stream bank. The paved greenway will be closed, but you will be able to walk around the closed section to get back on the greenway. This closure will be in effect from November 2021 through spring 2022 (weather permitting.) To learn more about the project, go here.
This greenway is nestled between the cities of Maplewood, Brentwood and Webster Groves. It parallels Deer Creek and links together parks, businesses, neighborhoods and green space in the area surrounding the confluence of Deer and Shady Creeks.

The trailhead in Deer Creek Park is located just south of the intersection of Manchester Road and South Hanley Road. If you live nearby, you may be able to walk to this greenway. You can also park in Barnickel Park or at the Marshall Avenue Trailhead.
Each greenway is managed in cooperation with different municipalities and parks departments, who set the rules for greenway use, parking and hours of operation. Greenways often span multiple municipalities, so please be aware that these rules can change as you travel along the trail. Please be sure to follow all posted rules and regulations while you are living life outside!

This paved asphalt trail extends 2.16 miles between Deer Creek Shopping Center at Big Bend Avenue through Deer Creek Park in Webster Groves and Maplewood to Lorraine Davis Park in Webster Groves. It links four parks and offers a direct connection to the stores in Deer Creek Center. It is not typically very crowded, making this a great place for youngsters to learn how to ride a bike!
