When the St. Vincent Greenway is complete; it will extend 7 miles from NorthPark and the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus all the way to Forest Park. It will connect with Maline Greenway on the north and ultimately join the Centennial, River des Peres, and Chouteau Greenways in Forest Park.
St. Vincent Greenway: St. Vincent Park to UMSL to North Hanley MetroLink (paved) runs 3.5 miles along the rolling hills of the UMSL campus and through the lush and shady landscape of St. Vincent County Park.
On the south side of the greenway, St. Vincent Greenway: Forest Park to Trojan Park (paved) runs 1.9 miles from Trojan Park at Etzel and Skinker through Ruth Porter Mall Park to Forest Park at Lindell. If you walk west along Delmar, you can meet up with the Centennial Greenway. The extension of the St. Vincent Greenway from Delmar to Lindell on DeBaliviere is almost substantially complete. New sod was installed as part of the landscape work this fall along with native trees and shrubs. Additional plantings will occur in the spring of 2017. This segment runs parallel to the Loop Trolley project that is currently under construction.
In fall 2014, a route from Etzel at Skinker in Wellston to St. Vincent County Park was identified through an extensive public engagement process. Design on this continues. The design team and Great Rivers Greenway staff are continuing to work together on funding strategies and phasing.
When complete, it will connect the cities of Wellston and Pagedale to the Wellston and St. Charles Rock Road MetroLink stations and St. Vincent County Park. It will also complete a seven mile, continuous greenway stretching all the way from Forest Park, across the University of Missouri-St. Louis Campus, to the North Hanley MetroLink Station!
