The Duck Creek Parkway trail can be accessed at many parks and trailheads along the 12.2 mile path, including Devils Glen Park and Veterans Memorial Park in Bettendorf and Duck Creek Park, Eastern Avenue Park, Garfield Park, Junge Park, Marquette Park, Northwest Park, and Emeis Park in Davenport.
The Duck Creek Parkway Trail, a hard-surface, separated multiuse corridor, runs parallel to Duck Creek through Davenport and Bettendorf, Iowa. Beginning in Emeis Park in west Davenport, the trail continues to Havens Acres Park in Riverdale. Largely used for recreation, the trail also connects many different neighborhoods to commercial districts, schools, parks, and other major transportation corridors as it runs through the heart of the Iowa Quad Cities Area.
From Devils Glen Park in Bettendorf, a short ride or run on the quiet residential South Kensington Street will connect you to the impressive Mississippi Riverfront Trail.
This trail also includes a fitness station nearby. Genesis Power Sports Performance invites you to take a break from the trail and tackle the Genesis HealthBeat outdoor fitness system, where you can enjoy the best of the gym in the great outdoors. From plyometrics to Tai Chi, the nine-station HealthBeat system provides an outdoor circuit training experience with cardiovascular, strength training, endurance and flexibility benefits. People of all fitness levels can start with exercises shown on the instructional signage at each station, and then create more challenging workouts by varying their activities.
