Connecting the St. Louis region with greenways so people can explore their rivers, parks and communities, making it a vibrant place to live, work, and play.
Great Rivers Greenway is a regional public agency, created by a vote of the people in the year 2000 to leave a legacy for future generations. That vote created a sales tax that funds our organization to build, bring to life and care for the network of greenways. In 2013, the region dedicated additional funds to parks and greenways, and we became the stewards of the local investment in the CityArchRiver Project, the transformation of the area surrounding the Gateway Arch.
Residents of the St. Louis region voted for and invested in a clear, bold vision - a dynamic network of parks and open spaces linked together by greenways, connecting our communities so people can live life outside. The network of greenways strengthens the social, economic and environmental well-being of our region. Community members proudly invest in, care for and champion greenways for years to come.
