Great place to walk, especially when it's a nice night out. Downtown Naperville is awesome at night time, and take your friends/family/significant other here..they will have a good time. There are places to stop, sit and chat about whatever is going on in your life. Great scenery, and a fun time. 5/5

Nice way of spending your day, walking along the river which goes through downtown Naperville, watching the geese and ducks and being able to walk to eateries and shops

Enjoyable paved brick walkway along the West Branch of the Dupage River. This path winds through a children's playground near the west end, through downtown Naperville, and past North Central College on the East. Nicely maintained and easy to push children in a stroller although you will need to cross some streets in the downtown area. The Riverwalk goes past... More

If you need to get some walking id than this is the place. Great little stroll and lots to see. Just people watching is great. Also a wonderful place to take engagement photos or wedding photos. Some have even gotten married in the amphitheater

What a beautiful place to take a walk or take pictures with the family. We love to walk our dog for a walk here. We've lived in Naperville for over 20 years now it never gets old. I love looking at the water too. When you have a stressful day come take a walk and enjoy.

One of the best spots in Naperville. Good for paddle boats,a nice walk, watching people and ducks and a great view from the sled hill or Carillon. Last Fling concerts in fall, ice hockey in the winter, swimming in the summer at Centennial beach quarry. Close to downtown restaurants. Now connects to North Central College with s peaceful nature walk.

The River Walk is a well-maintained and beautiful walkway along the DuPage River in Naperville. It's a very popular trail, and there are many restaurants and downtown attractions within walking distance.

Although it wasn't part of the itinerary, it was a fun little deviation. It was a simple way to get in some more exploring. The walk was nice. It was great to get out to explore Chicago on one of its classic attractions. It was free, and a great way to see the city. The only drawback was that it... More

This is a good place to take a walk and unwind. I recommend walking the top area, then going to the path along the river and under the covered bridge.
