I visit Naperville every couple of years and make sure I save some time to walk along the river. It is delightful and well maintained and each time I see something that I missed or something new. I hope the folks who live in Naperville appreciate what a treasure this is to have in your backyard.

This is a major highlight of the community. The city has improved the River Walk every year. We've been coming here for over 25 years and we've always been impressed with how well maintained and enjoyable the walk is.

The riverwalk area is okay, there is a variety of restaurants to choose from. We had to park some distance away in a parking garage and walk a lot. But that way you can browse shops too. It was very crowded, I guess because it was a weekend.

Gone here a few times with my family. This is one of the nicest river walks I have seen! Very clean and quiet. Naperville has done a wonderful job with the downtown/River walk area. Love it.

The Riverwalk in Naperville is picturesque, relaxing and a nice way to spend a couple of hours on a nice day. After a walk, stop by the gelato shop in the village right across the street.

Great for an evening stroll or photo taking for that special event, engagement photo's, senior prom etc. Quite at times but just enough people to make you feel good. Great swimming area and in summer you can hear the bands from outdoor concerts at times which can be nice

The Riverwalk was clean and pretty without too much commercialization - scenic and nice visit in a relatively small town. The 9-11 Memorial part was touching and important to see.

The gem of Naperville with 5 miles of gorgeous paths with bridges and fountains. A gift of our leaders with such forethought. As it winds through the heart of Naperville, it shows our history to visitors from around the world.

It's so rare, in the middle of a town this size to find a place where you con really get away from it all. The Riverwalk is such a place. Quiet places to do everything from sharing time alone, with others or just sit and read. The secenary is out of a story book, covered bridges, fountains, modern art and... More
