Recreational Opportunities

This flat greenway is great for beginning cyclists. It provides an accessible way to connect to shopping, work, nature and outdoor recreation, making it easy to travel on foot or bike between parks, businesses, schools and neighborhoods.

It connects people who are walking or riding bikes to local companies such as Brown Shoe and Enterprise; as well as to the Ladue shopping district, the Downtown Clayton business district, the I-170 Delmar business district, Clayton High School and the Clayton Community Center.  

Shaw Park features an aquatics center, playgrounds, and places to have a picnic. There is also a native plant restoration project in conjunction with Ameren underway on the property of Coinco, a business along the greenway. You can watch the progress as the seasons change.
