Missouri Greenway Master Plan

moriverMaster Plan

The master plan for the Missouri Greenway is a 55 mile (river mile) corridor that begins at the confluence of the Mighty Mississippi and the Missouri River and runs west to Boone’s Crossing in Chesterfield. The greenway will connect to the Mississippi Greenway, Sunset Greenway, Centennial Greenway, Fee Fee Greenway and Western Greenway; linking together the communities of Chesterfield, Maryland Heights, Bridgeton, Hazelwood, Florissant, and Spanish Lake.

Current Status

Missouri Greenway: Earth City Levee (paved) loops through Riverwoods Park and parallels the Missouri River in Bridgeton and Earth City for a total distance of 4.65 miles. It offers stunning views of the river and Historic downtown St. Charles as it stretches between Highways 70 and 370.

The Missouri Greenway: Monarch Chesterfield Levee offers three segments which will eventually connect for a 17-mile loop. A 5.5-mile segment is now complete from the Hardee’s Ice Rink to the Chesterfield Valley Athletic Club and over the Missouri River connecting with the Katy Trail and the Busch Greenway. You can also follow the greenway in the other direction 3 miles to Centaur Road. A 2-mile segment is complete atop  the Monarch Levee from Long Road to Baxter Road. Now that the bridge is open, there are 10.5 miles of trail built in this greenway!

The Missouri Greenway: Truman Park is located in Hazelwood near the Saint Stanislaus Conservation Area with plans to eventually connect the two. You can explore one mile out-and-back starting at the fishing pond in Truman Park. It’s a great place for a quiet and peaceful walk.

Fee Fee Greenway McKelvey Woods to Creve Coeur County Park
Construction is underway on the two mile extension from McKelvey Woods to Creve Coeur County Park. A significant milestone was accomplished in September 2017 when a 78 foot pedestrian bridge was set over Fee Fee Creek. The project is expected to be complete in early to mid-2018
