Residents of the St. Louis region voted for and invested in a clear, bold vision – a dynamic network of connecting rivers, parks and communities, strengthening the social, economic and environmental well-being of our region. Community members proudly invest in, care for and champion greenways for years to come.

There are 45 greenways identified in the overall “River Ring” plan for a total of 600 miles. We’re actively working on 16 of those 45. The map below shows the status on the 125 miles (and counting!) we’ve built so far, with another almost 200 miles in planning:
