The Naperville Riverwalk is beautiful. There's a walking path along the river, sidewalks above, and several covered bridges. This is a highlight of Naperville and there are many restaurants/bars located on the Riverwalk. It's also a beautiful venue for wedding photos

We always love running and/or walking on the Riverwalk paths. Downtown Naperville is a great place. The covered bridges add charm, the carillon playing on the hour, the variety of activities surrounding the riverwalk - all fun activities for children and adults alike.

The river walk is nice however the water is very swamp like. I wish they can clean it up a little bit.

It always seems like something is going on somewhere. You can always head into the down area and find a wide selection of restaurants and specialty shops. You can walk for several miles up and down the river in a relaxing environment.
