Deer Creek Greenway Description

This trail extends from Lorraine Davis Park in Webster Groves through Barnickel Park and Deer Creek Park to Deer Creek Shopping Center at Big Bend Avenue in Maplewood. Most of the trail is separated from the road except for two sections on relatively quiet streets – Pacific Avenue has a sidewalk and shared bicycle lanes, and Marshall Avenue under the railroad has a sidewalk.

At the north end of Lorraine Davis Park you can see the confluence of Deer and Shady Creeks. The pump track at the Marshall Avenue Trailhead has a pump track that is great fun for kids. Deer Creek Park, often called Rocket Park, has a space theme with a huge rocket ship.

Parking is available in Lorraine Davis Park (700 Lorraine Davis Ln, Webster Groves, MO), at the Marshall Avenue Trailhead east of Brentwood Blvd (345 Marshall Ave., Webster Groves, MO), in Deer Creek Park (3200 N Laclede Station Rd, Maplewood, MO), and at the Deer Creek Shopping Center (3200 Laclede Station Rd, Maplewood).

Deer Creek Greenway Reviews

nice walk beside a stream

The trail could be wider at times it narrows to a sidewalk. Walking next to the water is a nice feel of nature in the city.

Under Construction

I guess I tried this trail on a bad day. I will try it again when the construction is complete. May 3, 2022 the trail is under construction around Rocket Park and the Ball Park. The trail is closed there. Rode up Marshall Road all the way to Brentwood to try and get on the trail. Crossing the street to get to the Loraine park side of the trail was difficult. The 4 wheelers coming down Marshall were not being very respectful of us two wheelers. So I tried the crosswalk method that puts you onto a sidewalk. The ride around the park was pleasant and the concrete trail was in nice shape. I followed the trail back to go back to my starting point past rocket park and on to the shopping mall where I started. Back up Marshall (so so) to get on pacific. Pacific is a really quiet street. Made it back to the trail and came upon the other side of construction closed trail. At least at this point I could see the shopping center across the ball field in front of me. So I decided to ride across the outfield. Now I was faced with crossing another 4 lane road Laclede Station. There is a tunnel under the road. Maybe I should have selected that route. But This was another cross walk for safety to the shopping center.

Short but nice

It’s nice for a short walk through one park, around another, and through a neighborhood. We’ve been on it often, especially using it as part of a longer walk or bike ride. The only issue currently (spring 2022) is part of the path along Deer Creek is closed now because they are working on the creek.
