Schwiebert Park, Rock Island

Strolls along the Mississippi inherently posses a display of a certain American beauty—the feeling that Mark Twain maybe got everything right after all.  Places like Rock Island’s Schwiebert Park attempt to capture that sensation and then to amplify it.  Located at the intersection of the Island’s downtown and the great river, Schwiebert Park allows visitors the chance to stroll above the Mississippi’s strong current and look across at the Davenport skyline.  The park contains many amenities including observations shelters, parking, restrooms, a great lawn, a sidewalk fountain, sculptures, and what they call a “digital playground.”

Schwiebert Park, named for former Rock Island mayor Mark Schwiebert, opens at sunrise and it closes around 10:00 each night.  Interested parties can reserve certain portions of the park or the entire park for things like weddings, company parties, or family reunions.  Daytime visitors can bring a family and a picnic lunch, or you can just take a jog down the beautiful path that cuts through the entire area.  Schwiebert Park will always be a great place to visit when you need a short break from the shopping and want to remember the beauty and power of nature and the serenity that we can always find therein.

  • Couldn’t have asked for more! Rich is prompt, efficient, caring and very personable. Rich was great. Stormy was terrific, and the fact that they took care of a problem that arose long after the closing was serice above and beyond. We were very pleased.


  • Rich was very helpful in selling our home. Always willing to offer opinions and solutions as we went thru the sales process. He was always available to answer questions. I highly recommend him to help buy or sell your home.

  • My house was listed and sold in under a week – and the process was easy. Rich’s assistant Stormy was amazing and was always quick to respond to any of my questions. They took care of everything for me.

  • We found ourselves in a sticky situation, already under contract with a buyer, and then there was a horrible weather event that could have destroyed the sale. Rich was there to hold all the pieces together, and did so much work on all our parts to make sure the deal stayed together. I don’t think we would have sold without him. Rich is a national treasure!

    Diane and Steve

  • Rich sold our house in 5 days and above asking price! We were pleasantly surprised and thankful for the quick sale, and we know it was due to his expertise and negotiation skills. Additionally, his associate, Michelle Rottach, was incredibly helpful in our search for our new house. Her patience, advice, and expertise was critical to helping us find a forever home that we love. I highly recommend their team to anyone looking to buy or sell!
