Go, See, Explore: Scott Co Park + Pioneer Village


Located just 9 miles north of Davenport – Scott County Park is a hidden gem for local families to visit. With 1200+ acres – Scott County Park is the largest park in Scott County.

My kids love exploring Scott County Park — we enjoy nature walks and you can almost always find a deer (or many!). We love packing picnics and playing on a playground and in the summer the pool is fun for cooling off. In addition to the olympic sized swimming pool – there is a splash area for younger kids, a super fun slide – as well as a ‘kiddie’ pool.

Scott County Park has fourteen picnic areas and shelters with tables, grills and/or fireplaces accessible.

It offers:

  • a baseball field
  • playground equipment
  • nature trails
  • an equestrian area
  • five unique camping areas
  • an Olympic size heated swimming pool
  • restrooms throughout

Winter activities include sledding, cross-country skiing, tobogganing.
