The Recreation Program works to introduce the community and interested groups to the river and the developing Bronx River Greenway through canoeing, kayaking, and bicycling. Operating hand-in-hand with Education, Ecology, Greenway, and Outreach programs, Recreation offers an opportunity for an intimate experience with the river corridor to incorporate lessons, projects, and programs.

From May - October, the Recreation Program offers a full calendar of public canoe tours along all eight miles of the Bronx River within the Bronx. Private tours for groups and individuals are available as well. We offer  these trips as a public service to raise awareness of the river, showcase its wonders, and have fun. We know you'll fall in love with the river once you experience first-hand.

A special thank you for all of our Bronx River Paddle and Pickup Stewardship supporters for the 2016 season including L.L. Bean, American Canoe Association and National Fish and Wildlife Foundation!

Did you know, in 2012, the lower eight miles of the Bronx River were disgnated as a National Water Trial by the National Park Service in recognition of how far we have come in reclaiming the river as a recreational asset!
