Important Updates!

Be mindful of where you park your car at Scott County Park!

Only park your car in designated parking spot. Do not park along the side of any road. These are ticketable locations and the rangers will ticket you quickly. There are 100 parking spots at Whispering Oaks shelter with another 100 spots at the adjacent picnic area. If you do not park in a designated spot, you do so at your own risk!


The Quad Cities Marathon is Sunday, September 23!

The marathon is held along the riverfront on both sides of the river. The race crosses three bridges: the Centennial Bridge, the Arsenal Bridge, and the I-74 bridge. The bridges will remain open but their access is greatly limited. If you plan to cross between Iowa and Illinois on Sunday, either wait until the afternoon or plan on using the I-280 or I-80 bridges.
