My brother White Buffalo always enjoys taking a walk along the Truckee river after a hard fought battle with the local casinos. The river was named after Chief Truckee of the Paiute nation, whom White Buffalo says he knew in a previous life. This river, which was once teeming with Lahontan cutthroat trout, still has plenty of rainbow trout from... More

I only gave 2 because a certain part of the river walk is under construction by this time, but it's gonna look better after that.

It's a nice walk along side the Truckee River with a lot of restaurants along the walk. It's sad that there was quite a bit of litter and homeless people.

We went to Reno for a few days last weekend. I was in utter shock of how the recession has destroyed Reno, including the Riverwalk. It used to have lots of fun shops and we enjoyed the wine walk. They have a nice movie theater and a few restaurants. Other than that there are lots of homeless and empty storefronts.... More

We took a walk along the river. However the river is extremely low. They had a live band in the park. There was construction so parts of it were blocked off. There are restaurants, shops, homeless people and beggars although they are harmless. It is a nice walk but would be better without construction

We were pleased to visit this urban renewal project in downtown Reno. The city is doing a very credible job encouraging growth along this area and through midtown. It seems to be creating a renaissance for reno. Lots of eclectic restaurants and bars are popping up. The riverwalk itself brings the Truckee river to the people with walk ways and... More

When vacationing I do not like for panhandlers to harass me and my teenage son as we explore the downtown area of a city. The park had nightly concerts (the only positive), but I did not feel "safe" walking in this area past twilight.

Lots of construction going on. River is quite low to enjoy any of the amenities offered along the river walk (kayaking, tubing, etc)

Has a bit of nature and the city mixed into one. I liked seeing the river, not real big of course but very cool to see even downtown. The trees, plants and rocks are make a great setting. Bring your camera. Of course there are a few so called undesirables every once in awhile, but they mind their own business... More
