  • This was just a walk I did by myself in the evening. I felt safe and needed some relaxing time after meetings. Enjoyed the scenery and walk. 
  • This is an excellent place for spending the day with family. The river path is flat and accessible and runs along the river bank. You can reach most of downtown Naperville from here as well. There are will marked signs that direct you to the carillon, centennial beach, etc. The beach is also a must! It's the midday amazing public pool I've ever seen.
  • Lots of really nice areas to take pictures. Covered bridge, rock and plant landscaping. Events often occurring. Its just a few steps from downtown Naperville. Only complaint is that its crowded sometimes.
  • Absolutely amazing. Brilliantly designed along the river bed. Has nooks and crannies for you to actually access the river shore. Plenty of amenities and bathrooms along the paths. Filled with families spending time together.
  • Love coming here! So many cute shops and restaurants to explore and the Riverwalk is the perfect way to walk off the food. Plus, tons of Pokestops!
  • Love coming here to just walk around. Always something to see. Safe, clean environment for the family.
