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!!!

40 years ago when I first started taking my children to Credit Island it was pretty rustic and primitive. My brother in law made up a story about the Mississippi River valley monsters coming up to Credit Island during the full moon to play poker on the beach. We had a lot fun trying to spot them. Today the City... More

Credit Island is a pleasure to experience. It offers an opportunity to be with nature in many ways. The bird species living on the island is vast, there are picnic areas, playgrounds, and it is connected to the River City trail system with a walkway. The island offers an easy 3 mile walk and has an additional natural surface trail.... More

We will definitely be returning this summer. Never did see the sculptures like in the photos but did see an eagle flying around and snatching up some lunch out of the water. Will be hoping to catch some fish there myself this summer!

I visited the island with my children and grandchildren. It was a cold but sunny February Sunday morning, and it was so nice to be outside and enjoy the beauty of this place.

The park overall is pretty with a nice lodge that is locked unless it is being used, there is a shelter with grills for cooking, but it is not a park for camping unless it is floatzilla weekend which is not a great idea unless you go away from the main park, people come in and out at all hours,...

Not a very well maintained park. All overgrown with weeds and a lot of seedy characters seemed to be hanging around by the water in a few areas and sleeping on picnic tables. Was told it used to be a high end golf course years ago but pretty much a overgrown swamp now. Looks like the whole area floods a... More

It used to be a fantastic park. Since it has flooded for the past years, the golf corse has been closed and the whole Island has been let to rundown. The club house burned down and has now been re-built but shouldn't have. The Island now has a frisbee golf course, a bridge to the seedy part of Davenport ,... More
