Picnic at the Iron Horse Trestle Thursday, July 7, at 7 p.m.

The conversion of the Iron Horse Trestle into an elevated hiking and cycling trail in the southeast corner of Old North Saint Louis will be a great recreational amenity for Old North residents and will attract visitors from well outside the neighborhood.  On Thursday night at 7 p.m., residents and friends of Old North will get a chance to learn more about the project and explore the trestle in person.   City Affair Saint Louis, “a forum for sharing ideas about the future of the St. Louis urban environment,” will host a picnic and discussion about plans for the redevelopment of the Iron Horse Trestle.  The gathering starts at 7 p.m. at Hadley & Howard and includes a walking tour of the trestle at 7:45 p.m.

Here’s how the City Affair blog describes the event:

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch carried a story about the plans for the picnic (click here to read the online version) - and kindly repeated City Affairs’ encouragement that picnic-goers stop by the Old North Grocery Co-op to purchase their picnic supplies on the way to the event.
