It's so nice to walk for miles on a well lit path that is maintained. You can walk along the river, sit on a bench, grab a bite to eat & enjoy some ice cream too. There's so much to do along this beautiful landmark

Close to the center of town, this tranquil river walk offers winding trails along the DuPage River past the beach area and wooded vegetation. A great place to relax!

Love the beautiful river walk. A wonderful place to enjoy anytime the weather is good. A slice of Americana the walk takes you past restaurants, stores, swimming, boating, music, baseball fields, and quiet forest and park areas!

I live near the Riverwalk and get to enjoy it often. Great place to walk your dog and see people ice skating in the winter. You'll see ducks and geese. In the summer you can check out Centennial Beach.

A lovely place to walk along the DuPage River. A lot of families, some with strollers, use the Rverwalk. No Bikes or skateboards allowed, so not so good for teens

We spent many weekends visiting and strolling along Naperville’s Riverwalk area located in the heart of Naperville, adjacent to Centennial Beach. There is adequate free parking areas, as well as secure street free parking. Some seating areas are cleverly scattered along the walk. As the name suggests, the Riverwalk has walking paths that are paved and well maintained. We have... More

This river walk is the pride of Naperville It is very well kept with pretty foliage and fun fountains along the path.. The path follows the river for quite a way.

The Riverwalk in Naperville is an ideal location for a quiet, romantic date, or even a little walk with friends. We visited the walk during October while the leaves were changing color; the scenery was incredible. The walk is nothing long, but you can travel alongside the water with some great views. There are a few little architectural sites to... More

For years, this City landmark pleases locals and tourists alike-year round. At Christmas time, bright lights add to the beauty of this must-see site, with bridges and seating along a small river. Parking is scarce, but free and available with a little patience. With a plethora of dining and shopping surrounding this venue, it is a destination worth finding.

Thank s j
