About River Heritage Park:
Davenport's new park sits on the site of one of the area's most notable historical landmarks. The site's history includes: the western side of the first Mississippi River railroad bridge, where the treaty ending the Black Hawk War was signed, how Robert E. Lee surveyed the river's rapids, and Abraham Lincoln's involvement in the Effie Afton incident. In addition to the 800-ft. of railing, the park includes the new Rotary Gazebo. The park sits on a 7-acre green space just up river of the Arsenal Bridge. The park is accessed off of River Drive between 3rd and 4th Streets.
WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING
I appreciate your expertise discussing my air conditioning project and our little doodles on paper for the finer points and needs. I enjoyed the personal attention to detail. I was impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of engineering, organizing, timing and installation. I'm so glad that we still have union contractors that know how to do things right. As you know I have worked 37 years thru the IBEW # 145. On larger projects we would be assigned a "tool buddy" to work in the same area and help each other when needed. The reason I mention this is because Jeff O'Leary is the kind of journeyman I would choose to work with. He is polite, calm, well-spoken and knowledgeable. Of course an HVAC system is not a kit. It is a custom installation. Jeff made it easy to discuss the finer points and the installation as needed. I enjoyed the experience and I am very pleased with the outcome. The air is fresh and clean and easy to breath.
