St. Louis Gateway Regatta
- Jun 27, 2009
- Creve Coeur Lake
- St. Louis, MO (USA)
- Hosted By: St. Louis Rowing Club
The lake itself has a rich history as it was the scene of the 1904Summer Olympics.
All the aquatic events were held at the lake including rowing. As an ox-bow of the
Missouri river, Creve Coeur Lake is located in the rich Missouri river valley just
miles from the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers.
Recently "Rails to Trails" of Missouri has completed an extension from the bike
and walking path around the lake to the cross state "Katy Trail". This former railroad
bed is paved and offers fun stops at small towns and big cities along the Missouri
River from St. Louis clear across the state.
