We have visited our family in Naperville many times and never tire of this splendid walk beside the river. The local people have added a number of features, sculptures and remembrances to enjoy and reflect on/at. There a boating lake and swimming pool in the summer. We love it....

Great for a pre or post dinner walk. Well lit, well paved and plenty to look around and see. Great shopping/eatery district. Observed lots of families having a nice time.

We were in Naperville for the weekend and took time for a beautiful relaxing walk along the river. Covered bridges , nice sidewalks close to the water, lots of ducks to entertain you. A must stop when in Naperville.

The Riverwalk is just a really nice place to go. You can walk from an urban woods setting, to great parks, to an active downtown without spending a penny. We're lucky to have it in our town.

This is a nice spot (sometimes a bit crowded on weekends or right after school) to walk (no bikes or skates) and enjoy a little peace. There are several bridges (covered and uncovered) which are so pretty that everyone takes wedding and prom pictures here. You can walk along the DuPage River, along the duck pond where they rend paddle... More

I go to the Riverwalk at least once a month. It's amazing in any season. You can just walk on the path (with your leashed pet if you like) or walk closer to the water. Although you're not suposed to, many kids like to feed the ducks. There are many times art fairs, parades, or other fun activities that are... More

My third day in Naperville and my drive to Downtown Naperville on a perfect day was a pleasure. As I entered the park along DuPage River I saw a wonderful statue of a dog and cat with Halloween decorations as well as members who were walking agains the Puppy Mills/farms. I travel the world caring for owners home and their... More

Even though it was drizzling when we visited, that did not damped the enjoyment of the scenic walk we took.

The Riverwalk is the crown jewel of Naperville, especially for city folk venturing out there for the day. The walkway has stunning, idyllic landscapes. The people walking along the river have a feeling of serenity flowing over them. This is well worth a visit!

As Naperville residents, we always enjoy our time at the Riverwalk. I just wish we spent more time there. We went this past week for a walk on Columbus day. The fall colors were beautiful. As always, the Riverwalk is always is clean and safe for people of all ages. We enjoy walking so we find this a great place... More
