Welcome to the Meramec Greenway, which is located in east-central Missouri near the City of St. Louis. The Greenway follows the Meramec River from its confluence with the Mississsippi River for 108 miles into the Ozark uplands. Its natural features include springs, bluffs, caverns and expansive beaches.

Established in 1975 the Meramec Greenway now features over 28,000 acres of public parks, conservation areas and institutional lands that offer a wide spectrum of recreational and educational opportunities. Its success is a tribute to the unique partnership of governments and citizens that have cooperated for over thirty years.
