St. Vincent Greenway

Forest Park to Trojan Park

The southern portion of the St. Vincent Greenway stretches from Forest Park at Lindell to Trojan Park at Etzel Avenue and North Skinker Parkway. There is a paved trail that currently extends from Forest Park in front of the History Museum, along the east side of Debaliviere, across Delmar through Ruth Porter Mall Park, along Etzel Avenue to Trojan Park at the intersection of Etzel and North Skinker Boulevard.

This section of greenway stretches through residential areas and commercial districts and is a popular route for waking and biking to connect with Forest Park on the south as well as the Delmar and Forest Park Metrolink stations.  It also parallels the soon-to-be completed Loop Trolley from the History Museum to where the paved path turns into Ruth Porter Mall Park. It’s also a treasured green space for getting fresh air, having a picnic or enjoying family and neighborhood get-togethers.
