Latest developments on the St. Vincent Greenway
St. Vincent Greenway is a biking and walking trail developed by Great Rivers Greenway District. St. Vincent Greenway will extend for more than seven miles from North Park, near I-70 and Hanley Road, to Forest Park. The Greenway route includes completed sections through the University of Missouri-St. Louis campus and the adjoining St. Vincent Park. An east-west trail on the campus also connects to the Ted Jones Trail, which leads to downtown Ferguson.
Construction through Ruth Porter Mall Park and along Etzel Avenue from the park west to North Skinker Parkway in the West End neighborhood of St. Louis City is complete. Construction is expected take place on DeBaliviere Avenue adjacent to the Loop Trolley in 2014.
Between the UMSL-St. Vincent Park segment and the City portion of the greenway, the primary trail will move through Pagedale and Wellston, connecting the the Rock Road MetroLink station area and the MET Center area to the City. The Greenway will follow Engelholm Creek as much as possible.
At Forest Park, St. Vincent Greenway eventually will connect to other greenways, such as Centennial, Chouteau, and River des Peres. In the NorthPark business development, the Greenway will meet the Maline Creek Greenway, an east-west Greenway extending to the Mississippi River, which is now in planning and construction.
