Not a 'must see' but something to do while in Naperville. Put on some good walking shoes. Take in the wildlife. Do some people watching. Check out the fountains, sculptures and bridges. And it's FREE.

The Naperville Riverwalk is a wonderful area bringing you through downtown Naperville, along the river, past parks, fountains, activities, shops, etc. Throughout the year the scenery changes as new plants and flowers are blooming and bursting with color.

Beautiful scenery, you can walk, sit or just enjoy the view. The river is very peaceful. After enjoying dinner at one of the many restaurants in the area, a walk is just perfect.

The place to visit in Naperville. Beautiful place to walk along dupage river. Seasonal swimming at centennial beach and paddle boat rentals. Lots of green space to relax and a nice playground, walking distance to all the shops and restaurants of downtown Naperville.

Nice to stroll along for a few minutes while you enjoy downtown in this wonderful community. We like to go back and forth as we travel each street.

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
