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
Our new system that Crawford put in is significantly better than what we had in the past. We have a zone system in; it controls the entire house and the energy savings have been dramatic for us. We recommend a zone system to anyone.
