Elevate St. Louis: The Trestle Great Rivers Greenway By Diane Anderson Great Rivers Greenway hosted a free street party meets happy hour event to raise awareness about the Trestle, an old 1.5-mile abandoned elevated rail alignment in North St. Louis City. Great Rivers Greenway is working with St. Louis City and various partners aiming to convert the area into a linear park and greenway. The project is putting St. Louis on pace to become the third city in the world to transform an abandoned historic elevated alignment into a vibrant park and recreation destination. The other two are New York and Paris. Those who attended enjoyed samples from local food trucks while listening to the music by Gene Dobbs Bradford’s Blue Experience. Among those in the crowd were Mayor Francis Slay, Susan Trautman Executive Director of Great Rivers Greenway, Linda Goldstein Mayor of Clayton, Joshura Davis, Tammika Hubbard 5th ward alderwoman and Todd Antoine.
