North Riverfront:
We are kicking off a study to evaluate the potential for development along the North Riverfront Trail in an area that extends roughly from Laclede’s Landing to The Trestle. A team lead by Forum Design will research and recommend opportunities for transforming this industrial area into a destination for recreation and other development. Stay tuned for open houses and opportunities to share your ideas in 2015! For more information, click here.

    Trail Updates

    Our trails are managed by the municipalities in which they are built. Please report any trail issues to us and we can help to coordinate the appropriate solution and advise trail users on the site or via signage as well.

    Water and flooding conditions can change rapidly along our region's rivers and streams. Trail conditions can change suddenly. With high river levels, many of our greenways may be partially or completely underwater. Avoid water at all times for your safety. Report greenway conditions by emailing info@grgstl.org.

    Busch Greenway - Missouri Research Park Trail
    Use caution when crossing the bridge closest to the Katy Trail, logs and debris are causing occasional waterflow across the bridge and as temperatures drop, ice could form. We are working with partners to address the issue as soon as possible, but please be careful on this section of trail.

    Biddle Street Parking Lot
    The Biddle Street parking lot has several parking spots blocked due to work on an underground pipe; there is still parking available. Repair is ongoing.

    St. Vincent Greenway at Natural Bridge Road
    As part of the Natural Bridge Great Streets Project, be advised of construction - the trail is closed currently at Natural Bridge and University Place. For more information on the Great Streets Project, click here.

    UMSL Cross Campus Connector of St. Vincent Greenway
    The University of Missouri-St. Louis cross campus connector, connecting to the St. Vincent Greenway trail, will be closed beginning May 5th, 2014 for construction of the new Recreation and Wellness Center. The trail is expected to be closed for approximately six months.

    Monarch Chesterfield Levee Trail Construction
    The Monarch Levee Trail in Chesterfield Valley will be closed under the I-64 at the Daniel Boone Missouri River Bridge until construction on the bridge is complete in late 2015. Read more.
