Great event on the lawn

This is a great carillon that can be heard for mile s in all directions. The beautiful sloping lawn is a great place to enjoy the music

We stopped to look at this attraction when we were on the River Walk. The building was closed for tours when we stopped on a Monday afternoon so we didn't get to do that. We did walk around the grounds and they are beautiful. The bells played for little while when we were walking about and they sounded delightful.

Great architecture and a superb Carillion bell performance every day. Lovely location on top of a small hill. Best appreciated in early fall in the mornings or late afternoon. Very peaceful.

This is a beautiful way to see the whole town from up above. I like how you can walk around and see the river on the back side of it. I was confused where to buy tickets. If you go for the first time, lesson learned. When driving in go to the right to buy tickets first.

Beautiful setting in a beautiful town! If you have some time to spare, just take a walk around the Carrillon. You won't be disappointed!

The tour to the top of the tower is pretty awesome. You get to see all the bells and even see the room they are played from for the concerts. If you go on a clear day, you can see Chicago in the distance which is pretty neat too.

Excellent view of the city! It was also really neat to see the Carillon player play as we ascended the tower!

Its the best thing to do in naperville, well besides procreate. Besides walking along the beautiful riverwalk, the tower is the crown jewel of naperville

Welcome to Naperville's phallic symbol, A lot of money was poured into this and I am not sure for what reason? The park and quarry's nearby are more of a reason to visit than this eye soar.
