In the mid-west it is always challenging to enjoy the out of doors in the winter, but you can count on those. Who are assigned to keep the Naperville downtown riverwalk walk friendly all winter. So bundle up,enjoy walking toddlers, strollers and running on the always clear path along the DuPage! I do!

cant wait to return in the summer! The area is fantastic to visit. We look forward to warmer weather to really enjoy shopping by walking from place to place. Plenty of bars and restaurants to enjoy cocktails while you shop.

Naperville's Riverwalk is an absolute jewel...! Walking along the Riverwalk provides a very beautiful and relaxed experience.

You will find the beauty of nature mixed with... More

A visit to Naperville is not complete without a walk down the RIverwalk. Parking is free in downtown Naperville. The walk is easy, around the DuPage River, beautiful natural landscaping, free parking.

We would drive all the way to Naperville just for the Riverwalk. So much to see and with your man holding you, it feels just right. Must go in night.

We are from a suburb of Detroit, my husband is working a contract in Lisle. We settled in Naperville for his stay here and couldn't be happier with our decision. We love the Riverwalk, the downtown, the area and the people.

Wonderful walking area with cool wood-covered bridge right in the downtown area of Naperville with lots of cool restaurants and stores. Lots of parking within walking distance.

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
