Great Rivers Greenway plans to build an extension of the River Des Peres Trail from the current limit at the Shrewsbury MetroLink station north into the 24th ward ending at Slay Park. Construction will begin in early 2017. The trail will be built along the west side of Ellendale and Wabash Ave. The $3 million project is paid for by a combination of Great Rivers Greenway and federal transportation funding. The trail will safely connect our neighborhoods to the full River Des Peres Trail and Grant's Trail network, and a future Deer Creek Trail connection. Full information about the project is available here.
