The Village of East Davenport is a historic district located in Davenport, Iowa along the Mississippi River. This district has residential homes but is also a shopping and entertainment district and is highly walkable. The business districts along Jersey Ridge Road leading to the river and 11th Street along the river include restaurants, shops, pubs, delis, and other services. 


When walking with your dog in the Village of East Davenport, it is important to know that while Davenport residents get slightly less rain per year than the national average, they receive more than the average amount of snow in winter. Winters also frequently experience below-freezing temperatures so people with pets traveling on foot will need warm coats and boots and to be prepared to trudge through some white stuff! Severe cold snaps and winter storms should be avoided. Summers are hot and walking your dog earlier or later in the day may be more comfortable.

The Mississippi River on the south border of the Village of East Davenport is a dominant feature. The river has a yacht club with a marina located in the neighborhood and vessels coming and going are visible. Character homes in the area have richly landscaped properties and there is even an old school that has been converted to loft apartments. 


The area is hilly with most areas featuring relatively gentle slopes that are not too difficult to walk up and down, but some areas have steeper terrain that requires a more strenuous hike to climb. If you or your dog have mobility issues, you will want to plan your route carefully. Some residential roads are narrow and do not have sidewalks and the homes are set on elevated landscapes which provide limited level space for pedestrians along roadways. Keep your dog leashed, avoid streets without paved pedestrian paths, and walk facing oncoming traffic when necessary.

There are two parks and a riverfront greenway located in the Village of East Davenport. Lindsay Park provides 31 acres of recreational space with a playground, baseball diamonds, river views, and sculptures along the Riverfront Parkway. A yearly fine art festival is held here, although your dog may not appreciate the artworks as much as residents do!

Indian Springs Park is a smaller 3-acre park that lies in a natural depression just east of the trestle bridge. There is a natural spring located here that can cause the park basin to fill in spring. This attracts water birds but presents a hazard for dog walking. Most of this park is natural and is a great place to enjoy with your dog when it is dry enough!

The Riverfront Trail runs along the Mississippi River for almost 12 miles. It is paved and welcomes pedestrians with pooches on a leash, cyclists, and skaters. Watch out for other users on this popular trail.
