Mississippi River Greenway

Freedom River WalkThe Mississippi River Greenway is among the best collaborative successes in Lemay. The partnership among St. Louis County Parks, Great Rivers Greenway and St. Louis County Port Authority establishes an eco-friendly option for recreation and exercise. The extension of the trail along River Des Peres continues east to the northeast corner of Lemay, winding south into Jefferson Barracks Park and the future site for the Lemay community center.

Grant's Trail and the River Des Peres Trail are already popular recreational assets to St. Louis County. The Mississippi River Greenway is sure to be no different. Bikers and pedestrians will run alongside the mighty Mississippi River where they can enjoy seasonal changes and lively twists for a spectacular journey.
