Deer Creek Greenway: Small park at intersection of Big Bend Blvd. & Oxford Blvd. in Webster Groves

Project Overview:

Great Rivers Greenway and the City of Webster Groves are partnering with community members to plan a small park at the intersection of Big Bend and Oxford Blvd. in Webster Groves (near Deer Creek Shopping Center.) The park will include an extension of Deer Creek Greenway to fill the gap between the current endpoint of the trail and the 2025 Deer Creek Greenway extension through Maplewood to the River Des Peres Greenway. This park will:

  1. 1. Connect Webster Groves to a regional trail network
  2. 2. Beautify a gateway to the Webster Groves Community
  3. 3. Reduce flooding impacts by converting a vacant parking lot into a park

Project Location:

Intersection of Big Bend and Oxford Blvd; this will be a part of future Deer Creek Greenway expansion from Deer Creek Shopping Center through Maplewood to connect to River des Peres Greenway.

Project Partners:

  • Great Rivers Greenway
  • City of Webster Groves

Project Status

As part of the intersection study for this project, the community told us they wanted a park and other improvements at this location. Since then, we’ve acquired property rights to develop the park. Now we need your help to tell us what you want in the park! We have been working with Washington University students to help develop ideas for what this new space could look like;  Thanks to the 1000+ community members who weighed in  on the summer 2023 survey! We are working to advance the design based on your vision.
