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. Check out our 2015 public paddling schedule
- or call us at 718-430-4665 if you'd like to charter a trip for your own group.

Did you know?
In 2012, the lower eight miles of the Bronx River were
designated as a National Water Trail
by the National
Park Service in recognition of how far we have come in
reclaiming the river as a recreational asset.
