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.

Reno has done a fabulous job in making the river walk a gentle, beautiful stroll along the river. I always take this walk for some quiet time

I agree with Lance D review. I don't know what other reviews saw that we didn't maybe we were in the wrong area. Very few eateries and mostly empty stores. A lot of (don't think they were homeless)but people asking for money and large group of kids hanging around. We left. If you want to see a beautiful Riverwalk, try... More

This is a most wonderful leisurely walk especially in the early morning. The walkways are well maintained and there is lots to see. I always fan out to see the many old homes in the area, many with lovely yards. It is an easy walk and great for strollers or runners. I never miss taking it in when we are... More

Before leaving Reno I really wanted to go check out the River Walk. I had my nice camera with me to take some shots as I strolled. There were a couple restaurants. I saw no art shops or any other shops. The only thing there was seedy characters. I felt uncomfortable, as I was alone with a $500 camera. I... More

This walk is pleasant and offers several eateries and pubs along the river. Past the downtown area the river walk passes through residential neighborhoods. Nice scenery along the way.

Go when there isn't a drought as the river walk can be beautiful, fun, and cooling. This year the river is just a trickle. It is still ok but when the river is rushing... that's when it's awesome!

Reno really seems to be trying here. Lovely riverfront area with fountains along the river. A few nice restaurants along the way as well. It looks like an excellent start.
