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.

My childhood was spent in Reno, and came back to visit family. We drove downtown to look around. I was very impressed with the way the Truckee has been architecturally improved to be a lovely part of the downtown. There are places to walk along the riverbank. Very nice walkways. Fishermen can enjoy fishing on the banks. There is a... More

There was no water, bums sleeping under the trees and wind gusts that blew over merchants' racks of street vendors, injuring family members that were shopping nearby.

What can one say? It is a great town with an awesome river going through it. Cafe's and drinking places line the river. Fun

It's paved, relatively flat, with beautiful vistas all seasons of the year. It's not crowded and there is street parking. Bring your kids or leashed dog, even bike ride and swim or flyfish in warmer months. My only criticism of the walkway is the homeless encampments at various places which the city tries to keep in check.

Okay, first of all, if you are from around the Mississippi River, or east of it . . . you will laugh at the fact that we even call the Truckee a river. It will look more like a creek to you. But in the desert, we flock to any water we can get, and here in Reno, we do... More
