Situated along the Rock River, Rockford's early settlers crossed the ford at Founder's Landing and laid the foundation for Rockford's industries. It was known as the 'Water Power District'. The park commemorates the pioneering spirit of the founders of this settlement. The statues of Germanicus Kent, Lewis Lemon and Thatcher Blake bear witness to the tenacity of these pioneers that has established Rockford as an industrious, socially conscious community. The Davis Park is an ideal venue for outdoor festivals, marquees, gala events and concerts.
