Just a nice location to walk around and explore Naperville. You can learn a lot about the town just by walking up and down the river. Nicely lit, lots of benches for seating, and plenty to explore (bell tower, artwork, statues). Great to walk off your meal after dinner too.

A companion and i visited the Riverwalk, finding it a pleasant way to spend some subtly romantic time together. Coffee and ice cream located nearby allowed us to share a pleasant experience in a lively walk.

I grew up in Naperville (lived there 26 years), and have watched the Riverwalk grow from scratch. It is one of my most favorite places. Every time I return home, there is something new to discover. My children have also fallen in love with it. We love the fountains (especially the dandelion), the covered bridge, walking down by the river... More

Nicely done. Commercial and hotel accommodations along with the design of the channel made the w Riverwalk memorable,I highly recommend going but expensive bring plenty of money. Also visit the tower of America to look out over San Antone and of course visit the Alamo great museum. Alot to see and do if you like to walk and explore.

Went on a beautiful day with a friend, it was crowded, too many starts and interruptions. We thought it would be like other riverwalks but truly it was too narrow for more than 2 side by side.

A friend and I visited the Riverwalk in Naperville on a beautiful spring night in April. It was quaint, peaceful & a good stretch of walking! There were paddle boats for use in the daytime & many paths to walk. The flowers were the best part- so many tulips & well taken care of! There were many covered bridges along... More

Our team visited downtown Naperville following a conference and it is a nice little town. Good variety of shops, good and coffee :) ...not to mention ice cream and gelato :) True, the actual river walk was flooded up to the sidewalk along the river so we couldn't go there, but we enjoyed a nice wooden bridge and shops. Nice... More
