Explore Arch Park, With Time for Lunch
The AARP in St. Louis Breakfast Bunch, part of Citizens for Modern Transitâ€™s Ten Toe Express program, will host a walk Saturday, Nov. 18, over the Eads Bridge. Walkers will also explore the new Gateway Arch Park grounds, Kiener Plaza and the Citygarden during the hour-long tour.
â€śThe focal point of the arch makes a nice backdrop for selfies,â€ť said walk coordinator and AARP volunteer Loretta Davis, 63.
Participants will meet at 8:30 a.m. by the ticket vending machines at the Shrewsbury MetroLink Station, 7201 Lansdowne Ave., to take a train into downtown St. Louis. After the walk, group members will eat lunch at Kaldiâ€™s Coffee before catching a train back out of the city. The train should arrive at Shrewsbury Station around 1 p.m.
Davis said participants are always surprised by what downtown St. Louis has to offer and how easy it is to get there without a car.
Walkers are responsible for their own train rides and lunches. Those 65 and older can apply for a Senior Reduced Fare Permit with MetroLink and receive train rides for half price. Register for the free walk at tentoes.cmt-stl.org/special-walks or by calling 877-926-8300.â€”Katie Pohlman
