Dedication Ceremony for Forest Grove Park

POSTED: October 20, 2016

A dedication ceremony will be held on Saturday, November 5 beginning at 10:00 a.m. for the first phase of Forest Grove Park.  The dedication will consist of a short ceremony and ribbon cutting. Light refreshments will be served.  The park is located approximately 1/2 mile east of Middle Road on the north side of Forest Grove Road.

The new playground portion of this 100-acre park was made possible with funding assistance from the Scott County Regional Authority, the Friends of Bettendorf Parks Foundation, and the City of Bettendorf.  There is also a large pavilion, basketball court area, and parking lot.

The park will have a large passive use natural area along the Spencer Creek watershed that will be opening in the near future. This area will feature a number of trails, wildlife habitat, restored native plant habitat, and natural play features. Future plans for the site consists of a multi-purpose greenspace area that will include ball fields, soccer fields, additional shelters, recreational pathways, and more.  

The Phase 1 Project was constructed by McCarthy Improvement and Lower Construction, and was designed by RDG Planning & Design.
