I liked being able to walk along the river and see a great variety of activities all around. I especially like having dinner by the river and watching the water go by.

If you are a runner or just want a nice walk, GO HERE!! It's practically in the center of town, close to everything, and a fantastic way to get in a run. Or walk. We did two runs in our 4 day stay, and will absolutely go again on our next visit. The river walk is nicely paved, very smooth... More

Best to do during the day if you have any questions about safety, which we did not. Basically flat walk that if taken to the distant bridge leading away from downtown points you to Idlewild Park with a wonderful rose garden. Lots of shade points along the way. A nice way to be outdoors for a couple of hours.

The walk along the river was very peaceful and there were a ton of fun shops and bars to stop at along the way.

Needed some time outside the stuffy meeting rooms. Went for a walk along the river. Quiet and relaxing. Got to watch some kayackers practicing. Nice couple of hours.

The River Walk along the Truckee River in downtown Reno is very attractive and it's certainly off to a good start. The events at Wingfield Park are heightened by the ability to walk just a few feet away and watch kayakers, swimmers, and waders. The footbridge with its huge hanging flower baskets give it some ambiance. The few restaurants are... More

This is a beautiful walk - the scenery is fantastic, but there are a couple of places that you walk through that I would not have felt safe alone. But, regardless of that it is still worth taking.

The River Walk is laid out beautifully. Wandering trails, pedestrian bridges, gorgeous landscaping and bright flowers. One of the best places to visit in Reno. Restaurants are located there as well.

We enjoy the walk down the Truckee River, and watching the wild ducks. We usually walk around 4 miles. It's an easy walk but there's lots of homeless people lounging around down there. They don't bother you as there's security walking the area as well. There's no bathroom facilities to speak of. the Cieana Casino near by and there's bathrooms... More

River was nearly dry and everything looked kind of seedy. Lots of places closed. Don't think I would venture there after dark.
