The City of Olivette is working in partnership with Great Rivers Greenway (GRG) to plan the next segment of the Centennial Greenway from its existing endpoint at I-170 and Olive to Warson Park. GRG wants to continue its engagement with Olivette neighbors to learn the community’s priorities for a greenway through the city.
“The City of Olivette is very excited to be partnering with Great Rivers Greenway on this exciting project,” said Barbara Sondag, Olivette City Manager. “The continuation of the Centennial Greenway in Olivette provides a wonderful connection for residents, workers and visitors, and the timing of this project aligns with $16.2M of Park and Community Center improvements the City of Olivette is currently undertaking.”
The 39 North Greenway also connects to the Centennial Greenway from Olivette’s portion at Warson Park and extends west through the Danforth Plant Science Center’s campus and then to the Jewish Community Center. A high priority of the 39 North Master Plan is to connect assets and improve mobility by creating biking and walking trails connected to the Centennial Greenway. The City of Olivette’s project will be a critical link to the proposed 39 North Greenway connecting The Danforth Plant Science Center and BRDG Park to the Helix Center.
