MOLINE, ILLINOIS (February 18, 2022) — The Moline City Council has given Renew Moline the endorsement to move ahead in planning for a Skatepark and Pump Track downtown Moline in partnership with Moline Parks and Recreation. The identified location is currently between 4th and 5th Avenues and 20th and 22nd Street, partially under the new I-74 Bridge. We now need our community of skaters and bikers to help us identify the specific features that should be considered for the design of the Skatepark and Pump Track.

After collecting community input via the online survey, Renew Moline and the City will use these ideas and suggestions to help shape the design and size and budget and ultimately help the City contract with a Skatepark and Pump Track company to bring these ideas to life.

Renew Moline encourages the community to “think big” for specific features they would like included in the park as it relates to skateboarding and biking. The survey is open to anyone in the region to take part.

• Survey link:

• Survey opens: Friday, February 18, 2022

• Survey closes: Friday, March 4, 2022

Once the survey closes, Renew Moline will gather responses and share with the Moline Parks and Recreation Department as well as the Moline City Council with an anticipated deadline of early spring.
