It was a perfect place for afternoon walks with my host children and friends. Plenty of different paths, places to sit and eat lunch. Very peaceful and green! If you want to relax or simply find a good place to drink your coffee, go there !

How could anyone rate Riverwalk poorly? We really enjoyed strolling through the Riverwalk park area yesterday. Plenty of free parking, well paved walking paths, beautiful flowers and greenery, covered bridges, kayaking, sculptures, Veterans tribute area and covered shelters with picnic tables. A small group of guys were playing their guitar's yesterday morning which only added to the fun!

Right at the centre of Naperville people can enjoy a long,relaxing stroll by the river. Very well preserved park, nice scenery & a relaxing atmosphere is what you get. And all these for free! Really enjoyed it all three times I went up & down the river walk. It is definitely worth a visit!

A nice place to walk and enjoy the outdoors. The riverwalk is the hub of activity in the evening and parking can be a challenge.

If you are in Naperville or the surrounding area stop by the Naperville River Walk. It is beautiful and in the heart of downtown Naperville, which I call a "mini" Galena! You will certainly enjoy your walk down the Riverwalk, the shops and cafes as well as Naperville Settlement and other attractions!

Free and pretty place for a walk or to just sit and relax. Lots of cute shops and restaurants steps away from the walk.

Beautiful nature, fountains, the river, the bridges, everything is beautiful and relaxing. Kids have enough space to run and play. We go there every time we are free. A lot of restaurants near. Its just perfect.

Walking with family along the river with the beautifully landscaped park was a treat!!! The covered bridges and pathways made for a romantic walk as well.

I came to Naperville for the first time on business and knew nothing about the town. I wanted to find a place to walk and the locals recommended the Riverwalk. What a wonderful place! I loved the walk along the river. I had never been to Illinois and was amazed how clean the river was. The ducks and other birdlife... More
