River des Peres Greenway

River des Peres Greenway

A conceptual plan was developed for a linear park along the River Des Peres between Gravois and Lansdowne. The plan calls for revitalizing the existing trail, safely connecting the trail to the Metrolink Station, bringing users closer to the river, educating the users on the history of the river, enhancing the river and adjacent ecosystems and reducing the carbon footprint of the greenway by introducing native landscape.

The next steps are to analyze the preferred alignment and develop the design details to ensure the safety and accessibility of the trail to everyone, whether the users are roller bladders, hand cyclists or parents with children in strollers.

*Work completed as a sub to Arcturis.
