Building the River Ring: A Citizen-Driven Regional Plan
The Great Rivers Greenway District is building The River Ring, an interconnected system of greenways, parks and trails.

Dardenne Creek Watershed
Dardenne Creek Watershed is located in St. Charles County and extreme eastern Warren County, Missouri near the confluence of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers and is in the most rapidly developing area of Missouri. This rapid rate of development in the watershed has resulted in the loss of wetlands and the degradation of remaining wetlands and other water resources. Flooding and flash-flooding events are taking an increasing toll. The watershed’s citizens have a strong interest in improving the management of the stream, increasing open space for recreational use and preventing flooding.

Chouteau Lake & Greenway Project
A master plan and conceptual design for the proposed 1400 acre Chouteau Lake and Greenway, a master development plan for a mixed-use urban district, greenway and technology corridor along the south edge of downtown St. Louis. This plan will create a greenway and system of streams and lakes that connect forest park to the Mississippi River. View pictures, maps, and details online.
