North Riverfront Park

Overview and amenities for North Riverfront Park

Riverfront Trail
Riverfront Trail by Mark Groth

Nestled along the bank of the Mississippi River this is the City of St. Louis' northernmost park.

This parks has the best relationship with and access to the Mississippi River. This is the spot most popular with fishermen. Guys drive and walk right up to the banks and fish for mainly buffalo. This local delicacy, usually fried.

The other thing great about this park is the fact that the 10.8 mile North Riverfront Trail that connects the old Laclede Power Building at Lenore K. Sullivan and Biddle just north of the Arch to the old Route 66 Chain of Rocks Bridge, goes right through the park.

Great Rivers Greenway, the awesome regional institution connecting the metropolitan areas with hundreds of miles of trails has worked to rehabilitate this trail from 2005-2007 and there is now good signage and public art to keep this gritty, real, industrial trail interesting.
