It is bounded to the south by the Rock River. A mile to the east of Heritage lies the Green Valley Sports Complex, home to the city's largest complex of baseball, softball, and soccer fields. Just south of the neighborhood on the north bank of the Rock River is Old Green Valley Park with a scenic view of the river and two boat ramps. Heritage homes were built between 1960 and 1980 and consist of ranch, split, and trilevel homes. With its position on the southern fringe of the city it is among the quieter neighborhoods in the city. In this neighborhood there is a grade school, several churches, and a dental office. '''Deerview Walton Hills:''' Deerview is one of the newest neighborhoods in the city, with a majority of homes built in the 1980s or later. Many of the homes in the Walton Hills addition have been built in the first decade of the 21st century and have typically adopted traditional suburban styles. Next to Walton Hills lies Millennium Park, the city's newest park, which is jointly maintained with East Moline. Landmarks .

traditional home

businesses in the area include Temple's Sporting Goods and Lagomarcino's, an ice cream parlor and confectionery which has been open since 1908. Moline Centre is also home to the offices of Isabel Bloom (Isabel Bloom LLC) and the headquarters of Heart of America Restaurants. '''Floreciente:''' This neighborhood, stretching below the bluff along the Mississippi River from downtown to the east and Rock Island to the west, is the traditional home to the city's increasing Latino population, many of whom hail from the central state of Guanajuato in Mexico. The area was traditionally one of the oldest neighborhoods in the city, with many of the houses now serving well into their 2nd century of life. thumb right Olde Towne - 2011 (File:Olde Towne (Moline, IL).jpg) '''Olde Towne:''' Olde Towne is bounded to the west by Rock Island, to the east by 12th Street, to the north by 12th Avenue, and to the south by 19th Avenue. Olde Towne was the traditional home of Moline's large Belgian population. According to the Belgian Culture Center, Moline once had the largest Belgian population in the United States and now has the second largest. The area is filled with a variety of rental and owner-occupied homes and is also home to a vibrant retail center called City Line Plaza. Belgium maintains an honorary consulate in Moline located in this neighborhood. '''Uptown:''' East of Olde Towne is a very similar neighborhood, though not traditionally as Belgian but rather German and Irish, called Uptown. This thoroughfare contains many successful businesses such as Holst-Kakert Upholstery, K'nees Florist, and Wallace Music Company. The homes in the neighborhood are quite eclectic. '''Overlook:''' This neighborhood is bounded on the north by 7th Avenue and on the south by 12th Avenue from 10th Street to 16th Street. Named after the home of Charles Deere, Overlook sits on the bluff above Moline Centre. This neighborhood boasts a wide range of historically significant homes that have been maintained or restored to their original detail by their owners. Two famous homes are the Butterworth Mansion and Deere-Wiman House. These two homes and their gorgeous grounds are open to the public year-round. The neighborhood is also home to One Moline Place, a new development featuring luxury single-family homes, townhomes, and condominiums which is the former site of the Moline Public and Moline Lutheran Hospitals. The area also includes Velie Park and Butterworth Park. The Overlook Historic Neighborhood Association has conducted numerous activities to promote its neighborhood, including "Art in the Park," an annual June art festival held in Velie Park featuring works from local artists, as well as a walking tour of some of Overlook's beautiful historic homes. Rock Island County Historical Society is also located here. '''Karsten's Park:''' This neighborhood is centered around the city park with the same name between 5th and 6th Streets and 22nd and 23rd Avenues. 7th Street is the main thoroughfare through this neighborhood of many ethnicities. Residents of Karsten's Park are predominantly middle class; however, residential architecture of the period shows a growing affluence. Newer homes of the 1960s and 1970s era are located closer to 2nd Street, but the houses generally date from the 1920s–1940s. '''Wharton:''' Wharton, also sometimes known as Willard, is centered at the busy intersection of 16th Street and Avenue of the Cities (formerly 23rd Avenue). The Wharton Field House gives the neighborhood its name, and the field house (built in 1928 and named for P.T. Wharton, former president of the Moline School Board) and the adjacent Browning Field (named after John T. Browning) host many events, such as Moline Maroons basketball, football, and soccer games as well as track and field events. Wharton Field House used to host the Quad City Thunder CBA Basketball before the Mark of the Quad Cities (now the i wireless Center) opened. The neighborhood contains many large two and three story brick Georgian homes. Wharton is home to many prominent local businesses, such as Hungry Hobo, Whitey's Ice Cream, Rudy's Tacos, Teske's, and Happy Joes, a successful pizza parlor with locations throughout the Upper Midwest. '''Hamilton Heights:''' The neighborhood south of Karsten's Park is known as Hamilton Heights after the local elementary school in the area. Houses here mostly were built in the 1940s and 1950s and many are of brick construction, especially along 7th Street. The neighborhood is completely residential aside from Katy's Market, a small token of the city's German heritage that sells German sausages and other German groceries. '''Wildwood:''' Just before the city's western arterial, 7th Street, passes downhill into the Rock River Valley lies the neighborhood of Wildwood. Tucked away in a forest, the neighborhood contains a number of well-to-do homes built in the decades since the 1970s. The old Velie Mansion (Velie Motor Company), now Quad City Bank and Trust, is on the fringe of the neighborhood. A small part of the Wildwood neighborhood actually lies in Rock Island. Wildwood is also one of the richest neighborhoods, with upper-class families living in this excellent neighborhood. '''Prospect Park:''' This is a name for the broad area south of Avenue of the Cities between I-74 to the east and 7th Street to the west. Much like the other 16th Street neighborhoods, the neighborhood to the west of 16th Street (also known as Stewartville) is generally more upscale than that east of 16th (an area known as Greater Tartan Oaks); however, the far west and east fringes both contain newer large houses built in the 1970s–1990s. 16th Street is an important thoroughfare, housing Trevor's Hardware, WQAD-TV, and the actual Prospect Park itself, one of the largest in the city. Behind the park are many older large homes. The neighborhood is also home to Quad City Music Guild, which offers wonderful musicals year-round. The Prospect Park neighborhood is adjacent to SouthPark Mall (SouthPark Mall (Moline, Illinois)) and other stores like Best Buy, Toys R Us, Many Small Plazas and Petco. Also many restaurants are adjacent to this neighborhood, most in the outparcel of SouthPark Mall including Taco Bell, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Arby's, A&W (A&W Restaurants) and Long John Silver's combination restaurant, IHOP, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Qdoba Mexican Grill. Outside of the outparcel of SouthPark Mall restaurant include Miss Mamies, Los Agaves Mexican Restaurant, Osaka Japanese Steakhouse, New Mandarin Chinese Restaurant, and McDonald's. '''Park Hill:''' Park Hill is bounded by 4th Avenue to the north, 12th Avenue to the south, 19th Street to the west, and 27th Street to the east. This neighborhood boasts a terrific view of the mighty Mississippi River from its bluffs. Park Hill is one of Moline's oldest neighborhoods, with many of its homes built for the workers of John Deere. Several neighborhood homes were built between the 20th century and 1930s and were owned by prominent business leaders. Riverside Park, which gives the neighborhood its name, contains several baseball fields, a pond, two cemeteries, and the Riverside Aquatic Center, a pool with water slides and fountains. '''Forest Hill:''' This neighborhood, centered along 27th Street between 12th and 23rd Avenues, is one of the many solely residential neighborhoods which predominate in the east side of town. Forest Hill, much like Wharton, contains very nice older homes, unusual for the east side of town, which contains mostly newer construction. In Forest Hill, these homes tend to be much larger, though, making it one of the most desirable areas in the city to live. '''Highland:''' Highland is a neighborhood along Avenue of the Cities and was mostly built during the Great Depression. The business corridor of Avenue of the Cities keeps people in the area. Highland is the home of Hafner's Bar, El Pavito, and a number of small, independent retailers that gives Highland a "main street" look. '''Villa Park Green Acres:''' Together, these two miniature neighborhoods, built between the 1940s and 1960s, make up another solely residential neighborhood on the east side. The neighborhood was dramatically altered during the 1960s when several residential blocks and the old Oakwood Country Club were demolished in order to construct I-74. Villa Park today is the area lying to the east of I-74 and to the south of Avenue of the Cities. '''Molette:''' After World War II, the influx of veterans coming home from the war created a huge demand for starter housing. The developers of Molette, as in Levittown, responded to this need by creating large tracts of identical prefabricated homes. The area consists of winding streets that run between 34th and 41st Streets and 12th and 23rd Avenues, each with small two bedroom ranch homes, many of which have had porches and extra rooms added on to them over the years. '''Rockview Estates:''' This neighborhood is west of 41st Street and between John Deere Road and Moline High School. Most of the houses in this neighborhood are actually duplexes, and more people rent here than in most neighborhoods. The neighborhood sets on the ridges above the Rock River Valley and some apartment buildings take advantage of this location, although recent development along the John Deere Road Corridor, including Wal-Mart and Lowe's, has left the natural beauty of the Rock River wetlands largely destroyed. There are no commercial establishments in the area, although the Moline Public Library is nearby on 41st Street. '''Homewood:''' Much like Wildwood, this neighborhood meanders along the bluff overlooking the Rock River Valley. It is bisected by 53rd Street but extends from 41st to 60th Streets south of 34th Avenue. The houses were mostly built in the 1970s and 1980s and are of various styles. One of the most beautiful homes in the neighborhood can be seen from the parking lot of Jane Addams Elementary School. It is a two story white home with 4 large columns. Homewood is also home to the Playcrafter's Barn Theater, a long-running home for community theater. Homewood, Wildwood, and Heritage are among the more heavily wooded neighborhoods in the city, and consequently, both suffered heavy damage in the derecho which swept through Moline on July 21, 2008 around 6:00A.M. '''Heritage:''' This neighborhood lies to the south of the big box retail of John Deere Road between 41st Street and 53rd Street. It is bounded to the south by the Rock River. A mile to the east of Heritage lies the Green Valley Sports Complex, home to the city's largest complex of baseball, softball, and soccer fields.
