Chapter Nine: 2016: Chesterfield

Virtual Event: September 23rd, 4pm 

Chesterfield has grown to be the 14th largest city in Missouri and has expanded into the former floodplain of the Missouri River with the building of outlet malls and bi-box stores. A new bike lane across the just-completed Missouri River bridge now connects Chesterfield Valley to the Katy Trail Confluence Point State Park, located in St. Charles County, less than an hour’s drive from Chesterfield. 

More information on the activity for this chapter will be released soon. 
The below image illustrates the different towns featured in Growing Up with the River.  Follow along as we embark on this storytelling journey, every Wednesday through September 30th!
