The Grandest View of America's River, Eagle Point Park
DUBUQUE, Iowa - One of Our Town Dubuque's greatest treasures is Eagle Point Park.
In 1908 Oliver Shiras a Dubuque Judge, sold the land to the city of Dubuque. One little known fact: Historians say Shiras made the city promise the land would never be used for anything other than a park.
Today, thousands of people still visit that park each year to enjoy the view of the Mississippi River.
Unlike all other Dubuque city parks, visitors have to pay one dollar to enter Eagle Point Park.
