Crews will be working along the Sunset Greenway in Sunset Park December 5-15 to remove invasive honeysuckle and make repairs to areas impacted by erosion.

The Sunset Greenway has a 3.9-mile asphalt trail that extends from Sunset Park to Old Town Florissant. If you are lucky enough to watch the sun go down over the Missouri River in Sunset Park, you’ll know how the park got its name! Sunset Park is also home to the Sunset Nature Lodge.
This trail is mostly flat with both sun and shade. It has some steeper inclines in the section that takes you down to the river in Sunset Park.
This is why it's called Sunset Park!
