Wednesday, April 6, 2022 – Kickoff Walk to the City Foundry with Great Rivers Greenway

The Future Brickline Greenway with Special Guest Walk Leader from Great Rivers Greenway

Great Rivers Greenway makes the St. Louis region a more vibrant place to live, work, and play by developing a network of greenways. One such greenway that is getting a lot of attention is the Brickline Greenway. This walk will begin at the Cortex MetroLink Station where walkers will be guided through a short section of the completed greenway, then walk to the City Foundry while hearing from Great Rivers Greenway staff about plans for the greenway and partnerships they are working on, including elevated walking paths, art, and equality initiatives. Walkers will then have an opportunity to purchase lunch at the City Foundry Food Hall.
