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

Today we had two technicians at our facility. One took care of the AC and the other did a heating check. I want to take a moment to tell you what wonderful and courteous young men they both were. You certainly must be doing something right to have such respectful and thoughtful employees.
