The river walk is a lovely way to spend an evening with someone special. All the charm of the historic downtown Naperville surrounds you. If there is anything wrong it's that it's not long enough.

The Riverwalk is a nice place to stroll for a little bit, but not a place you hang out for hours. Hopefully as the city grows they'll realize the gem they have and add some permanent structures like coffee shops, cafes, etc to the route....More

We have lived in Naperville area for over 25 years... and still enjoy going to riverwalk. It is very refreshing in all seasons and for all ages. Over the years, it has really matured into a beautiful place. Love going here...

Lovely setting along the West Branch of the DuPage River. Although near the center of Naperville, the Riverwalk allows you to step away from commercialism and enjoy a peaceful atmosphere. Great for dog walking; our pooch enjoys seeing other dogs and greeting children. Great fun!

I love coming here to get some fresh air. The sights are wonderful, especially during the holidays when they have the bridge covered in lights!

The Naperville river walk is a beautiful area to walk and take in the hustle and bustle of the busy town. You can walk along both sides. The large quarry is something very unique that you can see in full use during the summer.
