The riverwalk is a fun place to stroll after enjoying a great meal in downtown Naperville. The riverwalk is well kept and has may little areas to sit and enjoy watching people and nature. It is a pretty area for photograghs as well, check it out! :o)

The river walk is not to be missed when you are in the area. Include the town area when you do the walk a long with the tower. Many places to shop and eat and they all have good food.

Walked as we waited for a table to eat breakfast. Park setting with wooden covered bridge. Plantings & landscaping were exquisite! A tranquil environment!

The Riverwalk is one of the best things about Downtown Naperville. Climb down to the lower pathway and walk close to the water. Bring your camera and capture pictures of birds, the reflections on the water, people and whatever else strikes your fancy. The light changes everything along the river. Try it at different times of the day. As sunlight... More

The setting is beautiful; a running river with nicely landscaped banks of lilac and other flowering plants. Covered bridges, a memorial to those lost in service along with a collection of speeches that highlight what it means to be a citizen. Open parks, tree covered walkways, a swimming park in a former quarry - it's all here. A lovely, peaceful... More

This is a very clean nice walk. I took my kids. We saw a baby bunny, ducks and a chipmunk. Fun for kids and adults. Safe place to walk. It's a little hard to find a parking spot.

When in Naperville, make sure to take time to walk the Riverwalk. It's beautiful! The dandelion fountain is pretty cool, and there are some awesome statues, including a tribute to the victims of 9-11.

This place would be great for a family stroll if there was a parking space to be had, Naperville is a great place but planned poorly for the parking!
