Truckee River Walk
This river flows from Lake Tahoe to Pyramid Lake nourishing farmland along its journey. Starting at Wingfield Park, you can walk for miles in either direction. Going east toward downtown Reno, you will pass the place where thousands of divorcees have thrown their wedding rings into the flowing waters. Birds of all kinds including Canadian geese, hawks and kingfishers can be seen foraging for food. Anglers can also enjoy the superb fishing the river offers.
Nice river & nice parks but not really safely
to take a walk along. Too many homeless people
& teen age with bad behavior. One time is enough
for me. Good to know but never come back until Reno
got more securities.
i like the i dea of mother nature, river runs in the middle of the downtown, you can walk alone , or with groups or you can walk your pooch... different kinds of people from the upper high to the lower grounds you can see on this park... i visited this pa;ce in the afternoon and the pictures were so great... will recommend
It is a great thing that the city has decided to clean up the river and make the area a bit more friendly.
However, I have noticed when I drive by the park by the river, there are people swimming in the water with their cloths on and a ton of people just milling around. It kinda seems like we have tons of hobos that just hang out by the river.
Personally, there are times I feel uncomfortable walking down the river because of the "interesting" types of people it attracts.
By overall, an improvement
Reno has greatly enhanced its urban area - aside from the casino/condo conversions.
The River Walk is a delight throughout any season, and something to relish for residents and visitors, alike.
Not only is there aforementioned Wine Walk, but also, the NMA, National Auto Museum a fine theater and many local eateries, along with much local history.
Reno has much to offer and much in which to take pride.
I lived in Reno as a small child of 7 to my 13th b-day. Reno had a population of around 20K people. The Truckee River was my life. We used to ride our horses all over the place and end up everyday at the river. I used to catch baby fish in my cowboy boots where the fish ladder used to be just before the Virginia street bridge. I was thrilled to death when I heard they were building the river walk. I went to McKinley Park School in the 2nd & 3rd grade. What a beautiful area it has become. I am now 60 and just had my right knee replaced and am now able to walk the River for the first time since I was a child. I'm so happy for the citizen of this great town
Our hotel (Plaza) was located right next to the Truckee river. Everyday we would stroll the river walk, maybe grab a bite to eat and sit on one of the many benches and watch kayakers maneuver their way along the river. It's a beautiful site, w/ the mountains in the background and the city landscape.
I love it there! Whenever I'm feeling even the slightest down, I go there and instantly feel better. It's beautiful. The shops are awesome and unique. The movie theatre there is my favorite. In the summer, there are movies and diffent types of musical/dancing events that go on at Wingfield Theatre. About every different type of person that you can think of shows up there and everyone gets along really well. The Kayak Park is super fun also! My favorite place in Reno to go!
We really enjoy walking, so when we discovered the River Walk last Summer, we were pleasantly surprised. It is landscaped beautifully with small waterfalls coming out of the side of the walk ways, each one with a different wild animal motif. Plenty of benches and seating along the walkway for those who would just like to stop and enjoy watching the Truckee River flow. t is close to the Casinos and downtown.
