Beautiful river walk
Aug 2021 • Family
The weather was nice. There were many local families swimming in the river. There are plenty of restaurants to have a meal or drink. But be aware as there are a lot of homeless here.

What a pleasant day
Aug 2021
Mid-day, mid-week walk was peaceful. The weather cooperated and it was a mild day. The river is low and the flow is slow. There are parts you could walk across. We strolled from Wingfield Park to Idlewood Park.

Wonderful Walk Along a Beautiful River
Jun 2021
Great walk along the Truckee River. An opportunity to sea fine restaurants and artist studios. There are opportunities to swim in the river and to rent tubes for tubing down the river. It is wonderful to walk along a river that is clean, has fish, and good for swimming. Reno has a friendly community vibe.

Very Nice
Aug 2021
The City has done a nice job with this area. It contrasts quite a bit from the nearby downtown. While there were definately some disadvantaged people here and there my wife and i, who are both 65+, were comfortable walking the full 360. Reno should be sure to promote it as it changed our picture of Reno immensly

Dog lovers nature walk
Aug 2020 • Couples
Walking the river is extremely nice, watching the fishermen fishing...our dog loves it because he loves barking at other dogs working on that one with him... you meet all kinds of people along the path, just a beautiful walk in nature...

Nice easy walk with local interests
May 2021
We were able to park right by Wingfield Park at a meter (2 hrs. for $3) and the meter takes credit card and I believe cash.
We walked part way toward downtown and then on the other side back to Wingfield Park crossing over and walking the other direction all the way to Idlewild Park.
At Winfield Park there was a good number of people and activity with swimmers, kayaker, fishing, picnicking and some homeless.
For the most part it was all clean and the Truckee River was flowing nicely with rapids.
The sidewalk walkway goes along the river and has areas for putting a blanket and benches for resting and lots of lovely flora landscaping separating it from the road.
It was safe and easy to walk mid afternoon on a Thursday.
We expected there would be more shops and restaurants but it seems to be more recreational.

Great Walking Paths along the Truckee
Sep 2020
Walking paths are wide and scenic with paths on both sides of the river at some points. Makes for a nice walk away from the casinos. While downtown area is run down in Reno, the River Walk is quite nice and well maintained. Does have a lot of homeless sleeping along the river so be aware. Place seemed safe and several nice little parks as well as a larger one further west.

Great Place for a Walk Around
Apr 2021
This may be the best part of town. They have developed the river area into a beautiful park and a place where you will want to spend some time. Good for strolls and for picnics. Fun to watch the river flow.

Awesome

i love to walk and enjoy the nice weather. The walk was nice and looking at the river was also very nice. But looking at the homeless people kinda ruined it for me. Otherwise i loved it and i would definitely go there again sometime.

The are things to discover along the Tricker River
Sep 2020 • Friends
Are you looking for a place to take a nice walk? You don’t have to go far as it runs through downtown Reno. Walk along the Truckee River- it’s the hidden gem in the biggest little city. You never know what you will see as you walk the river walk walk promenade (both sides of the river between Arlington ave and lake street) or half the river walk one side (doesn’t matter which starting at Arlington) and head East. Next to the Harrahs Auto Collection is a path next the the river (the Tahoe-pyramid bikeways/walking path (it runs clear to vista in Sparks). Usually walk as far as Wells Ave and turn around. Or head west from Arlington on the north side of the river (riverside drive) and head west. You come to booth, cross the bridge, right on Arlington and head down to Reno’s neArly 100 year old Idlewild Park. Catch the crooked mile, still heading west snd see what you discover. You will be surprised how far the path along the river is. The is nature, pea pole enjoying themselves, runners, walkers, bicyclists and more. Go discover the life along the truckee!
