Newly Renovated River des Peres Greenway Trail to open May 8 in conjunction with CMT’s Metro Market Celebration
Join Great Rivers Greenway in celebrating the opening of the newly renovated River des Peres Greenway trail on May 8th. The improved three-mile trail, which runs from Gravois to Lansdowne along the River des Peres, is now fully ADA-compliant, is wider and provides safer access directly into the Shrewsbury/Lansdowne MetroLink Station. The celebration will take place at 5 p.m. at the Shrewsbury MetroLink in conjunction with Citizens for Modern Transit’s Metro Market event, which features food and retail trucks, a bike tune-up station, an upcycling station, commuting information, giveaways, live music and more. It will also serve as the finish line for the Great Race, which places Team TRANSIT, Team BIKE, Team CARSHARE and Team CARPOOL in a head-to-head competition to raise awareness about the viable transportation options available in our region. Representatives from Great Rivers Greenway will also be participating in the competition as part of Team BIKE, and residents and commuters are encouraged to come cheer them on from the finish line. Free trail maps, courtesy of Great Rivers Greenway, and free bike helmet fittings, courtesy of SafeKidsSTL, will be available at the ribbon cutting.
