A place everyone can enjoy.

As a local, this is my favorite area of downtown Reno when I go. The Jungle is a great place to grab some delicious coffee or beer (the Taphouse or the Hub are nice as well), sit... read more

At one time, this probably used to be a really nice walk. The money poured into the sidewalks and railing make it nice, but at present, the Truckee is considerably down and the homeless people surrounding it, and sleeping around it, make this a NOT to do list item. It's a shame, as this is not what is used to... More

As a local, this is my favorite area of downtown Reno when I go. The Jungle is a great place to grab some delicious coffee or beer (the Taphouse or the Hub are nice as well), sit on the patio with a book or down by the river to watch the sun come up, feed the ducks or if you're... More

The multi year drought has hurt the river walk. The water level is very low. There are homeless people living along the river at some spots along the 3 miles that we visited. The river walk in town is much better than out by the airport.

At the river walk you can go rafting down the river, swim at your own risk (no life guard) or cool off by just get your feet wet, sometimes the city of Reno has a free movie night just bring your own chair or sit on the grass and enjoy. They have the different events going on most of the... More

A very nice walk in the heart of Reno. The City keep it very clean. It's definitely worth checking out. A nice diversion from the casinos.

Beautiful landscaping and a wonderful outdoor ampitheatre with green lawn and outside events for families to enjoy while the kids splash in the river. Watch out for the end of the river area though where several homeless people live. Stick to the downtown area.

I was in town for 4 days, and walked this trail everyday. The first day I went east from Center Street. It only one block for someone to try selling me drugs while I was running! The following days I walked with a group down to Idlewild Park and back, and never had a problem. Lots of homeless people, but... More

This is a lovely walk, all year round. Avoid the hottest part of the day in summer if you can. There are plenty of restaurants, pubs, and even a movie theater along the walk, and lots of interesting architecture. It is great to watch the kayakers in the river by Wingfield Park, and to attend a concert or other activity... More

After the hype in the tourist information leaflets this was a bit disappointing. Much smaller than expected it was a fairly pleasant bit of the river which was being well used by the locqal population, but nothing special. Especially disappointing was a child throwing stones at the ducks with no adult seeming to have a problem with this.
