There aren't many places you can walk along a river while right down town. Enjoy the peaceful setting. The rocky reiverbed looks natural. Flowing water is almost always restful. Head west out of downtown. continue your walk. Here you'll find city parks strung along the riverside. I like this part of the walk the best. It's a great place to... More

River walk is great way to enjoy nature in the city. Our dog always enjoys it when we bring him with us. River is very scenic and park and sidewalk areas beautifully landscaped. We usually walk it several times every trip to Reno.

This time of the year is difficult because of the weather but it was warm enough to walk and explore without crowds.

I would say that the truckee river along the entire length that runs through Reno is the best place to be in Reno, bar none. It's natural, sweet, elegant, and gorgous. There are no blinking lights, no one trying to win money off you, just a pleasant interaction with nature in a bustling place. Don't miss this, and walk along... More

Walk down the steps to this little river park, enjoy the tinkle of the water, relax and enjoy a break for the busy activities of the downtown area.

This area s lovely & a great concept, however it falls short in execution. It should be cleaner, & better patrolled. I did not feel 100% safe plus it was dirty & trashy. Many homeless camping & defecating along the way. Still worth seeing though.

This is awesome! The Truckee river have a beautiful view, especially in a sunny day. There is a lot of restaurants and bars during the walk! I love it

Very nice and scenic. I have been to Saint Antonio River Walk several times. Reno walk is much more scenic and cleaner. Water was flowing nicely after a good rain. Do not miss it!)

Reno can take pride in this great green space in the core of the city. To be able to walk along beside the river with trees and flowers in bloom is just such a great experience. We also appreciated the art work and the benches along the way.

A walk along the river, in the middle of town. What the city did after the flood several years ago is amazing. Stand on the bridge on S Virginia and imagine the river over flowing so much that the CalNeva was sanbagged.
