At the Metropolitan Parks and Recreation District (also known as "Great Rivers Greenway"), our long-term vision is one united region from the Katy Trail to the Gateway Arch. The region we are working to build will be a healthier one - clean, green and connected.
The River Ring is our visual conception of this dream. Here we work beyond borders - connecting an entire region that voted us into existence to carry out a greater mission of improving the region.
Our interconnected system of trails and greenways, on-street bicycle routes and parks will encircle the St. Louis region, encompassing a 600-mile web of more than 45 greenways that will crisscross the region. It will also provide access to trail and greenway projects being developed by several partners to include: Madison County Transit (MCT), the Metro East Parks and Recreation District (MEPRD) and the St. Clair County Transit District.
Today, we are working in 17 active greenways that are in various stages of development. View our greenway pages to see how the project is growing near you. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to get up-to-the-minute news on greenway projects near you!
