We loved walking along the water! The river walk is done very well, there is nothing like a downtown with a river running through it!

We stroll here frequently. It is a very nice space to take a walk before or after eating at the nearby restaurants in downtown Naperville.

The river flows slowly by the walk. Its pleasant with an abundance of flowers. You can take a look at the restaurants that line the riverwalk. We took a stroll after dinner. They keep the river looking sharp. We noticed a workman the next morning...More

The sidewalk on the riverbank was quiet, even with a range of people using it. A playground area had a group of kids and parents. One area has some beautiful tiles representing parts of Naperville's history, donated by various families.

We went on a romantic walk after dinner downtown. There were several local musicians playing in different locations. There were plenty of people walking, but it didn’t feel crowded. It is also great with little kids to see the ducks and geese along the river.

We walk the river walk in Naperville as both a form of exercise and entertainment. We have enjoyed the new shops, wine tasting and restaurants. This is a great family or solo experience. Recommend it to both visitors and residents.
