We have been to the Naperville Riverwalk many, many times. It is ALWAYS fun and entertaining! We were there to see the "Scar-illion" at the Carillon the weekend before Halloween. It was FANTASTIC! They had dancers perform from the "E'lan Dance Company" and they had a big inflated cat and Frankenstein on stage. The Carillon played in between sets, theme... More

The Riverwalk is a beautifully landscaped walkway along the river that offers an enjoyable stroll through downtown while avoiding the stores.

The Naperville Riverwalk is a wonderful destination. Whether taking a stroll along the Dupage River, or seeing it's many sights, the Dandelion Fountain, The Carrilon Bell, Fredenhagen Park, the paddle boat quarry, Centennial Beach there is something for everyone to enjoy. Downtown Naperville's is steps away with shops galore and some of the best restaurants in the Chicagoland area!

It is very safe, clean and beautiful to walk. It is a must to have a romantic date to talk and enjoy a great walk. Try to go in a fresh night so you so not freeze haha!

Beautiful covered bridges and flowers. Trees are turning for the fall foliage. Restaurants nearby are great. Eat breakfast at The Egg Harbour.

The Naperville Riverwalk is a real hidden treasure. While it has gained much more attention in the last few years, there remains a quiet and serene quality to its environment, and it is generally not very congested with foot traffic. Great place to take some pictures!

The Riverwalk is a great place for walking your dog, strolling with the family and running. From. Hillside to Jefferson, it's under 2 miles, however, if you cross the bridge and Jefferson, it continues for miles.
