Connection Opportunities

Using the Wildwood Greenway and appropriate connector roads, trail users can access Babler State Park, Rockwoods Reservation, Wildwood Community Park, and anywhere in the Wildwood Town Center Plaza. The Wildwood Greenway offers a connection to the Hamilton-Carr Greenway then, in turn, access to Glencoe Park, the Al Foster Memorial Trail and Trailhead.

Future Plans

The Wildwood Access and Mobility Plan outlines numerous future trail connections and pathways. Additionally, the City of Wildwood, in conjunction with Great Rivers Greenway (GRG), has been researching the possibility of a greenway corridor connecting the Missouri River Valley to the Meramec River Valley (connecting the Monarch Chesterfield Levee Trail to the Hamilton Carr Trail). This vision has the potential of providing trail connections to all major parks in the City of Wildwood, twenty (20) miles of trail in the Chesterfield Valley, and access to the Katy Trail. Also included in the Great Streets Planning Process, are trail connections with the City of Ellisville. The beginning of this connection can be seen with asphalt trail recently completed in the area of Strecker Road and State Route 100. Finally, the ongoing planning process includes a major trailhead facility at the Monarch Chesterfield Levee and Centaur Road.
