Naperville Riverwalk is such a pleasant surprise to first time visitors to Naperville, and it continues to be a pleasant experience once one moves to the area. The special thing about it is that one moment you are one with nature, sailing or bathing at the quarry or listening to the music of the Carillon, then a few blocks away... More

Great tourist attraction that is frequented by all ages and nationalities. Nice place to go after a meal in one of the many of restaurants in downtown Naperville to walk and enjoy the scenery. Photos are also a plus. Lots of families bring their dogs too for show. Enjoy!

The riverwalk continues to expand over time which makes it that much more enticing. You can walk from south of town to northwest of town amongst trees and sites that include the Milleneium Carillon, Centennial Beach, the Skate Park, the DuPage River, Naper Settlement and can stop along the way and the fountains, wonderful restaurants downtown and even the paddleboats...

I live here, but still this is a great place to people watch and enjoy nice weather. You can then branch off to the shops in downtown Naperville

An award winning trail following the DuPage Rive , slowly meandering through downtown Naperville and beyond. Naturally, it is very busy on weekends- therefore, see if you can come during the week to enjoy its nuances.

Looking for a place to get a little exercise and give the kids something to look at, as well as wear off some energy? Head to the Riverwalk and enjoy the scenery. You will find plenty of places for the kids to explore like the covered bridge and the Dandelion Fountain. Enjoy family time at the Riverwalj.

A Unique neighborhood gem is saying a lot based on the competition in downtown Naperville. I have been to most of the great restaurants in Naperville and find many to be "neighborhood Gems". However, if you are looking for an upscale restaurant for a special occasion, client lunch or dinner, or relax with your significant other for cocktails and listen... More

This is a great area to walk along the river. The river winds through the downtown area of Naperville, Illinois. There is a covered bridge that's there and plenty of park benches, just encase you want to stop and take in the scenery.

The river walk is the raisin d'être for many Napervillians. It it the heart and soul of downtown. Much of the work was done voluntarily by folks who simply love this town.

Naperville did a great jon laying out this more than 1 mil walking path along the DuPage river. Goes by sand beach volleyball courts, Centennial Beach, cover bridges and into downtown.
