Very nice and pleasent walk along the rivers edge meandering through the park. Work ongoing to make it a continuous loop. Northside could do with a bit more TLC.

Went with friends to visit the Riverwalk. What a way to spend a lovely afternoon. Naperville is a great little town and everyone was so friendly.
