Residents and Visitors Invited to Participate in Riverwalk Amenities Survey

Commission seeks public feedback to help determine the future of the Riverwalk

In conjunction with the 35th anniversary of the Naperville Riverwalk, the Riverwalk Commission is seeking public input via an online survey. The goal of this survey is to engage the public to determine which of the Riverwalk’s current amenities they like and what they would like to see changed or improved. Through this survey, the Commission is ensuring the community’s voice is heard as they plan for the future.

In addition to being asked about their overall impression of the Riverwalk, survey participants will also be invited to weigh in on four proposed Riverwalk projects. Input gathered via this survey will help steer the Riverwalk Commission as it decides how to prioritize these proposed projects.

“The Riverwalk is one of the most recognizable and visited features in Naperville,” said City of Naperville Riverwalk Administrator Jan Erickson. “As it has played such an important role in the lives of our residents, we’d now like to offer the opportunity for these same people to share what they think works and what needs to be changed while allowing us to seek public guidance in determining the Riverwalk’s future.”
