Deer Creek Greenway Master Plan

Master Plan
This greenway’s master plan traverses the cities of St. Louis, Maplewood, Webster Groves, and Brentwood, connecting with the River des Peres Greenway in the City of St. Louis along Deer and Shady Creeks. .

Current Status
Deer Creek Greenway: Deer Creek Park currently links the Webster Groves side of Deer Creek Park to Maplewood’s popular “Rocket Park.” It also parallels Deer Creek on the eastern side of Deer Creek Shopping Center.

Future Connections
Construction to expand the existing Deer Creek Greenway to Webster Groves’ Lorraine Davis Park is underway ! The project broke ground in Lorraine Davis Park in Fall 2017. Work will progress in stages, moving east towards Deer Creek Park. Construction is expected to be complete in Fall 2018. Click here for more details.

Next, we’re engineering to connect this with the River des Peres Greenway at Francis R. Slay Park in the City of St. Louis.

The goal of this project is to extend the existing Deer Creek Greenway from its current endpoint at Big Bend Blvd. and the Deer Creek Shopping Center to the River Des Peres Greenway at Francis R. Slay Park near the intersection of Canterbury and McCausland Avenues. We are working with our partners at the City of Maplewood and City of St. Louis to seek community feedback as we plan the route to connect these greenways.

A community meeting and workshop was held in December 2017 at Maplewood City Hall to share potential routes and gather community members’ input about their likes and dislikes for each of the options. Stay tuned for more updates as the planning process continues!
