Ben Butterworth Parkway/Ralph B. Birks Recreational Trail

Located along the Mississippi River, the Birks Recreational Trail runs the entire span of Moline’s 4.2 mile shoreline. Two miles include the Ben Butterworth Memorial Parkway, and the remaining 2 miles is along roads, sidewalks, and separated paths adjacent to downtown Moline and businesses. This trail is perfect for cyclists, walkers, and runners of all abilities. The terrain is flat and surface is asphalt and concrete. A small portion utilizes city streets, but it is primarily separated trail. This trail is part of the Great River Trail that connects Rock Island, IL to Savanna IL.

The Ben Butterworth Parkway is located just across River Drive from the WIU-QC Campus (View Map)

Quad City Health Initiative

The Quad City Health Initiative emerged out of the interest of over 300 community members and leaders in improving the health of the Quad City region. In 1999, QCHI established a community Board and began working with representatives of local health departments, providers, insurers, social service agencies, educators, businesses, media, law enforcers, foundations and governments.

QCHI seeks to be our community's recognized leader for creating collaborative action on health and abides by the core values of commitment, collaboration and creativity.
