I have visited this park since I was a kid. It is a great site for family picnics, you can reserve shelters with a deposit, and there is a basic playground for younger children. The new pool is awesome and makes a great change. If you like to sled, it is the best in the Quad Cities with a huge... More

The Fejervary pool is the worst pool I've been to in my entire life. Do NOT waste your money here!!! They should have a NO FUN sign stuck along with EVERY Other sign they have. I was a lifeguard for 10 years of my life. NEVER have I seen or had to enforce such rules at a pool. 1) I... More

I think a lot of these bad reviews are based on nostalgia and not having actually visited the park any time in the present. (The children's learning center used to be a zoo.) I enjoy this park and the learning center. They have a sand area, a natural building area, a natural play ground for the children to climb on,... More

This park was the top park of Davenport at one time. With Mother Goose Land and Monkey Island gone.....so is the glory of this park! I remember taking my children to these attractions and the park was one of their favorite places to go. It was mine too as a little girl. Davenport has lost the incentive to entertain our... More

I grew up in Davenport back in the 19070s. And as I was watching channel 6 news just now they were talking about Fejervary Park. So I did a google search on the former Mother Goose Land and was sadden to see it is no longer there. When I lived in Davenport we lived on the far east side which... More

We stopped at the playground on a Sunday morning and there were a couple large groups there, but it wasn't packed. The playground equipment is different, so kindof interesting to watch kids figure out how the spinning pieces worked and what to do. We visited the learning center, which looked like a way for kids to get some "nature" play... More
