The Schuetzen Park was founded in 1870 as a shooting park, or "Schuetzenpark" by Davenport's German-American population. Over the years, many amenities were added including an inn, a zoo, a roller coaster, and a music pavilion. While most of these buildings have not survived, visitors can see a 1911 streetcar waiting pavilion near the primary trailhead. The park is now maintained as a nature and recreation area that also hosts events. Several trails of varying lengths loop their way through the woods.
