“Great Walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

The river walk is not to be missed when you are in the area. Include the town area when you do the walk a long with the tower. Many places to shop and eat and they all have good food.

“Beautiful area!”

Walked as we waited for a table to eat breakfast. Park setting with wooden covered bridge. Plantings & landscaping were exquisite! A tranquil environment!

“Now this is a RIVERWALK!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Absolutely beautiful Riverwalk, flower planting galore, brick paths, Carillion, Swimming beach off the path, covered bridges, sculptures galore, wildlife such as birds, and ducks. Very pleasant walk and it is not a short little walk, it is a nice long peaceful walk. You can rent paddle boats and have lunch and ice creams on the walk. It has everything all nestled in downtown Naperville. On weekends park for free in the Municipal center at 400 S. Eagle if you are having problems parking on the street. While you are there check out the shops in the area. You can spend a good deal of time there enjoying all Naperville has to offer. Just off the path is Centennial Park Beach, boy does this beach have it all!!!! Large area, swim lanes, lifeguards, picnic areas, splash park WOW!!!

“Walking Attraction”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

The Riverwalk is one of the best things about Downtown Naperville. Climb down to the lower pathway and walk close to the water. Bring your camera and capture pictures of birds, the reflections on the water, people and whatever else strikes your fancy. The light changes everything along the river. Try it at different times of the day. As sunlight flees, and the lights come on, you'll discover a new vista of beauty. It's a never-ending source of fascination for my husband and me.

“Idyllic spot in the heart of Naperville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

The setting is beautiful; a running river with nicely landscaped banks of lilac and other flowering plants. Covered bridges, a memorial to those lost in service along with a collection of speeches that highlight what it means to be a citizen. Open parks, tree covered walkways, a swimming park in a former quarry - it's all here.

A lovely, peaceful spot to walk off breakfast or lunch.
