The Chicago Riverwalk is an open, pedestrian waterfront located on the south bank of the main branch of the Chicago River in downtown Chicago, Illinois managed by MB Real Estate. It extends from Lake Shore Drive to Lake Street. Called the city's 'Second Waterfront', after Lake Michigan, the Riverwalk contains restaurants, park-seating, boat rentals, and other activities. Its current and planned final extent was opened to Wolf Point in 2017.
