The Riverwalk is a great place for young and old to people watch, have a nice walk in a nice setting, catch a concert, meet before heading to dinner, relax in the great outdoors.

Went to see Santa, a little cold but always pretty at the Riverwalk. Have also been in summer time when all the trails are open and it's a great long walk. Also good stroller access to walk with your baby or toddler.

It's called the crown jewel of Naperville, and for the most part it is!! The downtown portion can get very crowded at times, but if you keep strolling west it's quiet & pretty.

Walking the Riverwalk takes you from a downtown restaurant and shopping atmosphere to a park like setting. We loved the Riverwalk and the downtown Naperville area we moved closer. The Riverwalk is now just a block from my house. The bridges are beautiful and picture perfect.

This beautiful, tranquil bricked walk that meanders along the river goes right through charming downtown Naperville, with its many unique shops and eateries. The walkway itself is dotted with quaint covered bridges, unique fountains, and lovely landscaping, so it's equally picturesque in any season. A serene way to enjoy the downtown area with your family; or to take a romantic... More

This is a beautiful place to walk during any season. We often take the dog there even in the winter as they do a wonderful job of keeping the area free of snow and ice.

Peaceful, away from the traffic. Very safe. It will be nice when it goes all the way to Chinatown as planned.It's my preferred way of walking to Michigan Ave.,
