   October 10, 2021 ,   Cruise Industry

Davenport IA (Iowa USA) is making a million-dollar investment in a riverside park which is part of an effort to get ready for an anticipated increase in cruise traffic.

Davenport IA is a Mississippi River cruise port and city in the USA's Quad Cities Metro (Northwest Illinois / Southeast Iowa). The region consists of 4 counties - Iowa's Davenport and Bettendorf, and Illinois' Moline and Rock Island. Quad Cities' metro population is ~400,000, with a total area of ~170 mi2 (400 km2).

The port city repaired the seawall and is now extending the riverwalk and promenade that runs the length of River Heritage Park's riverfront. The promenade features a decorative walkway, benches, and lighting.

The latest Mississippi cruise ship schedule shows large boats from 2 cruise companies anchoring simultaneously in 2022 along the seawall.
