Great Rivers Greenway is the public agency connecting the St. Louis region with greenways. In 2000, a vote of the people created a sales tax to leave a legacy for future generations by connecting three counties together with greenways. When complete, the concept calls for a 600 mile network of greenways connecting St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County. With collaboration by many partners and driven by input from community members, the greenways come to life piece by piece.
The map to the right shows the status on the 130+ miles (and counting!) we’ve built so far, with another almost 200 miles in planning.
We have 20+ projects going at any given time – all in various stages of planning, design and construction. Learn more about the long-term plans and current status of these greenway projects by following the links below:
Projects In Planning
Great Rivers Greenway is currently working on several plans for several projects outside of the list of existing greenways above. Learn more about these projects and look for opportunities to provide your feedback to help inform the planning process!
Greenway on Hodiamont Tracks
The Hodiamont Tracks are an inactive space that have the potential to become a greenway where people could walk, jog, ride a bicycle, push a stroller, use a wheelchair or have a picnic. We have been working with members of the community to determine whether a greenway would be a good use for this corridor.Learn more!
St. Charles County Greenway Plan
Great Rivers Greenway, partners, and community members engaged in a planning process to prioritize greenway investments in St. Charles County. With your help, we developed an updated St. Charles County greenway map with prioritized projects and partnership models for building greenways.Learn more!
North Riverfront Open Space and Redevelopment Plan
Great Rivers Greenway has worked in collaboration with many partners to create a plan to promote economic revitalization of the North Riverfront by transforming vacant property along the Mississippi River into public parks and recreation amenities as well as encouraging private enterprise. See the complete North Riverfront Open Space and Redevelopment Plan here.
North County Listening Tour
We’re listening, North County residents! We’re hosting a Listening Tour in the areas of Bridgeton, Hazelwood, Florissant, Black Jack, Spanish Lake, Old Jamestown and Unincorporated St. Louis County. Please share your thoughts to help us understand where connectivity can be improved in your community via greenways.
Baltic Creek Greenway
St. Charles County residents and stakeholders said a new greenway linking the Dardenne Greenway at St. Charles Community College with the KATY Trail State Park should be a high priority project. This was identified through the St. Charles County Greenway Master Plan. We are working with community members, local municipalities, and others to plan this new greenway named for Baltic Creek that runs parallel to a large portion of this route.Learn more!
