Around The City
Gramercy Park is home to Ancient Native American burial grounds overlooking the Mississippi River and providing a stunning view of neighboring Dubuque.
Dunleith Park offers spots to picnic, the aquatic center and swimming pools, playground for the youngsters and a ball diamond.
If you are interested in golfing we have 45 challenging holes across 4 courses (including a Par 3 course) at Lacoma Golf Course or a 9 hole course at Birchwood Golf Course just a couple miles north of the Wisconsin/Illinois State Line.
East Dubuque has superb sports programs for our youth in community softball, pee wee baseball and East Dubuque Youth Football League. Many volunteers with strong dedication ensure the success of these youth programs.
Being situated between the mighty upper Mississippi River and the surrounding high bluffs, we are the northern Gateway to the Great River Road in Illinois. Thanks to our three marinas, Frentress, Mid Town, and Millennium Bar & Marina the river is easily accessible. Pull up to a sandbar to picnic, relax and make new friends, watch the boats, jet skis and skiers go by. Ice fishing, snowmobiling, and ice golf are popular in the winter.
