The City of Chicago is pleased to welcome you to the Chicago Riverwalk! The 1.25-mile long path has been constructed in phases over time and includes four distinct districts; The Confluence, The Arcade, The Civic, and the Esplanade. The Chicago River is a treasured natural amenity in the urban canyon of world famous architecture and the Chicago RiverwaIk allows a close proximity to the waterway. The continuous path from Lake Street to the lake front also allows a vertical connection from Upper Wacker Drive down to the waterway. The new Community Marketplace and the concessions program are closed for the winter, but will return in Spring of 2020.
The City of Chicago exists because of Lake Michigan and the many river systems, including the Chicago River. The video depicts the City’s history and development of the waterways.
