Downtown River Walk Professional Review and Guide
"The Truckee River flows right through the glitz of downtown Reno, and the town has dressed up this lovely short promenade along its banks with flowers, sculpture, waterfalls, bridges, and a whitewater park. Even the most dedicated gamer needs a little time away from the tables, and the Truckee River Parkway, tracing the sparkling Truckee adjacent to Reno’s casino district, provides a convenient and entertaining diversion.
If you worry you won’t be entertained, never fear. The riverside path overflows with people-watching potential.
Cyclists, skaters, dog walkers, waders, rafters, kayakers, picnickers, dancing children and swimming teens, basketball
players, and dancers, jugglers, and other street performers—
they are all here, enjoying the playland that’s been built
along the water."
