Naperville Riverwalk

a wooden covered bridge over the DuPage River

Considered the "Crown Jewel" of Naperville, the Riverwalk is a place of beauty and tranquility along the West Branch of the DuPage River. Created in 1981 to honor Naperville’s 150th anniversary, the Riverwalk features 1.75 miles of brick paths, fountains, bridges, meeting and event places, outdoor sculpture and artwork, recreational facilities, and celebratory memorials. The Riverwalk is a preferred destination and an ideal place to stroll, unwind and reflect. Come relax and enjoy the scene!

Planning a trip to the Riverwalk with a GPS device? Please use the address at the bottom of this page, which will take you to the middle of the Riverwalk. A Riverwalk Brochure (PDF), includes a description of many of the Riverwalk amenities, a listing of some of the annual events, a brief history of the Riverwalk, contact information, a map and more. The video "Flowing Through the Hearts of Naperville" celebrates the creation and history of this treasured amenity.
