The River des Peres Greenway is a developing recreation and transportation corridor that will stretch from Forest Park to the Mississippi River. The greenway currently connects seven parks, three business districts and six neighborhoods with the Shrewsbury MetroLink station. The Ten Toes walking tour will highlight the important connections between transportation, recreation and stormwater management. Along the tour, we will see native landscaping on the greenway, rain gardens, a “living wall”, shopping and dining destinations and a park with a bicycle education area.
The group will meet at the Shrewsbury MetroLink for a brief welcome and introduction to guest walk leaders from Great Rivers Greenway. The group will then head out on River Des Peres Greenway.
