This beautiful park, located in the heart of the Downtown Rock Island Arts & Entertainment District, is located on the riverfront between 17th & 20th Streets.

The downtown park offers spectacular views of the Mississippi River, and includes an open-air stage, playground areas, interactive fountain, observation shelter, waterfront promenade, bike trail, and beautifully landscaped grounds.

The park features digital playgrounds using technology to combine the excitement of digital gaming and the outdoor playground to get kids back outside and playing. The new playgrounds do not come with instructions; kids are encouraged to explore the system and discover all of its innovative features on their own or with their friends.

This park offers up close views of the river and some of the best views of the bridges, Arsenal Island, and our sister cities.

The fountain is at ground level with water sprays that are fun for all and offer the opportunity to run through the water and play.

Honoring Mark Schwiebert:
Mark Schwiebert served as mayor of Rock Island for twenty years. During his tenure, Mr. Schwiebert provided vision and leadership for the creation of this new riverfront park. Naming Schwiebert Riverfront Park recognizes Mr. Schwiebert's tireless efforts to guide the City of Rock Island in the decisions of what should be built on the riverfront, what it should look like, who it should serve, and how it will play a critical role in connecting The District to the Mississippi River. Naming this park for Mark Schwiebert is a fitting tribute for the countless hours he spent on this effort.
