The park was very clean and well kept. It was pouring down rain so we did not get out of the car. We could drive right by the statue of Chief Keokuk though and that is what we came to see.

Rand Park is absolutely beautiful. I walked all through the park. A lovely pond, flowers and plants everywhere, equipment for the kids, an outdoor area for concerts, all on the Mississippi River.

Rand Park is a surprisingly large and diverse park for a town the size of Keokuk. It is a very pleasant place to watch the river flow or take a stroll around the lake. The Chief Keokuk statue is certainly worth a visit.

Nice view of the Mississippi River! Easy to walk around and quite pleasing to the eye. Not sure I would visit at night! Seems like it could be dangerous. Keokuk is an interesting town with a checkered past. I enjoyed my visit however.

It was amazing driving thru the Christmas light display. Each display was better than the last. Impressed to see such a fantastic display in a small town. Do not miss the opportunity to go.

Not sure what the couple was doing in the car that was parked near the monument, but sounded like they were having some excitement. Not a good example for children. Not sure what the smoke coming out of the windows that were open!! But the...More
