Nice walk

Really has cleaned up since last time I visited. Nice area for a relaxing walk in Reno. Located right downtown so easy access. Lots of water Pokémon in the area.

I love to jog along the Riverwalk. See the funky artwork, watch the river flow, enjoy the outdoors. This year I ran the Thanksgiving 5K road race with about 800 others on a fine sunny day. Nothing like a run along the Truckee River to put a good spin on the day. Reno's done a great job making the the... More

Not really for kids it's a long somewhat boring walk. Has some interesting artwork along the way.They seem to gear things more for adults around this walk.

The River Walk provides visitors opportunity to walk along the River. Not strenuous there are wide walkways but some inclines if you venture from the streets and bridges onto the bike paths. Be careful on the as there is no railing. Many people were walking their dogs.

The river walk is a fun escape from the city. It goes down each side of the Truckee River. You can easily start on one side, walk up the river cross over on a bridge and walk down the other side. It is not spectacular and it is worth a visit. Otherwise, Reno is not a very good walking city.

Nothing dramatic but a very pleasant place for an hour's walk. Good river views, nice architectural features along the way, quite a few birds. The city has done a good job.

Recently relocated and we love what the City of Reno has done with the River Walk. It is so beautiful and vibrant. Full of music, children laughing, happiness, good cafes... just a cool place to stroll on an afternoon or evening.

We planned to visit the river walk but didn't expect to see the art. The sculptures are unique and it is pleasure walking around enjoying good weather and arts at the same time. Also we were lucky to have enough parking spots - still have to pay!
