River des Peres Greenway

River des Peres Greenway

The landscape architects partnered with the civil engineers at Burns & McDonnell to complete this 5 miles section of the 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 two phases of the greenway were constructed in 2012 and 2017 to ensure the pedestrian safety and accessibility to everyone, whether the users are roller bladders, hand cyclists or parents with children in strollers.
