Phase 2: Trojan Park to former Eskridge High School Site in Wellston
This is the second of three projects that will connect the northern and southern sections of the existing St. Vincent Greenway. It will extend the greenway an additional .53 miles from its current endpoint at Trojan Park on Etzel Avenue to the site of the former Eskridge High school in Wellston.
Project Location: The greenway will extend north from Trojan Park along Stephen Jones Avenue and west to the intersection of Plymouth and Sutter Avenues. The expanded greenway will include a small “pocket park” at Plymouth and Stephen Jones that will overlook new native plantings along the banks of Engeholm Creek. Heading west on Plymouth Ave, the greenway will connect with St. Louis County’s MET Center, STL VentureWorks, and Metro’s Wellston MetroLink Station. The trail also features a MetroBus stop with improved seating located near the MetroLink tracks.
Plans are complete and we’ll break ground on the .53 mile expansion from Trojan Park in early summer 2021 once permits have finalized.
