Welcome to the Downtown Greenway in Chillicothe, Missouri

August 9, 2018


  • Tranquil Garden Setting
  • Rest Stop for Downtown Shoppers
  • Central Location to Downtown Retail Area
The Downtown Greenway is located at the corner of Washington Street and Clay Street. Formerly the Ritz Theatre site, the building was razed and a beautification project undertaken by the Parks and Recreation Department. Utilizing the original rock base as a border, the green space includes a number of shrub and flower plantings and a winding sidewalk through the corner lot. It is overlooked by a traditional wall mural on an adjacent building. Beautification on the site is done with the assistance of the Chillicothe Garden Club.

Our renovations to the Downtown Green Space at the corner of Washington Street and Clay Street have come along nicely! Thank you to the many individuals and organizations who were involved in the project. The original garden benches donated by the Chillicothe Culture Club in 1999 were placed in their new spot during our renovation on August 9, 2018.
