The Riverwalk is one of the best things about Downtown Naperville. Climb down to the lower pathway and walk close to the water. Bring your camera and capture pictures of birds, the reflections on the water, people and whatever else strikes your fancy. The light changes everything along the river. Try it at different times of the day. As sunlight... More

The setting is beautiful; a running river with nicely landscaped banks of lilac and other flowering plants. Covered bridges, a memorial to those lost in service along with a collection of speeches that highlight what it means to be a citizen.

This is a very clean nice walk. I took my kids. We saw a baby bunny, ducks and a chipmunk. Fun for kids and adults. Safe place to walk. It's a little hard to find a parking spot.

When in Naperville, make sure to take time to walk the Riverwalk. It's beautiful! The dandelion fountain is pretty cool, and there are some awesome statues, including a tribute to the victims of 9-11.

This place would be great for a family stroll if there was a parking space to be had, Naperville is a great place but planned poorly for the parking!

I grew up here and we recently went back to visit some friends. One of the things I wanted to do was go for a walk on the Riverwalk. It really is beautiful. The thing I could do without is all of the geese but there is not much that you can do about that.

I loved taking a stroll along river walk with my significant other. There are benches to sit on and enjoy the view, the area is clean and very close to down town Naperville.

Well maintained and very pretty with the river and landscaping. Great shopping nearby and plenty of restaurants. Paddleboats are available in the summer to rent. Plenty of trails to walk or ride bikes.
