Although it was still winter it was a warm day so we decided to check this island out. I was pretty unimpressed. I wanted to see those statues but a local told me that they took them out. The kids did like playing on the tank that was set up between the playgrounds. There were some good photo opportunities there.... More

The city has done some heavy duty clearing of dead trees, cutting down trees, and clearing brush at the entrance and causeway lately. WOW! It looks 1000% times better entering the park. I bet by summer some grass will fill in the mud and look much more inviting. You can now see the river through the woods. Congrats to Davenport... More

In the winter you will find eagles and many Canada geese. Had a small dog with us and he probably had the best day of his life off leash in a very large field chasing geese.

We were hoping for a nice park experience for our 3 year old but did not find it here. The facilities have not been well maintained and we did not bother to spend more than 15 minutes in the park. Find something else to do with your time than to come here.

Credit Island was a trading post for American Indians who paid for goods with beaver pelts. There is a nice art installation there and a recreational area. Great place to Bike around and see when in the area.

Beautiful spot near city, quiet. Very nice location away from bustle of town but still close. Some areas flooded when we visited but was still quite beautiful and quiet!

Enjoyed the park. The statues near the entrance were a nice touch. Nice place to observe and enjoy wildlife. Plenty of opportunities for photographers.

I've been going to Credit Island since I was a kid. It hasn't changed much, over all. Take your mosquito repellent.

I remember going to this park as I was growing up in Davenport. I moved away some 40 years ago and have been back many times but this year I revisited credit Island. The city has done a fantastic job updated and upgraded this park. Congratulations!!!
