City of Water Day Bronx River Full River!
Start at 219th street, ends at Soundview Park
Celebrate City of Water Day on the Bronx River!
As part of the Metropolitan Waterfront Alliance's City of Water Day, the Bronx River Alliance is offering a full river canoe experience on NYC's only true, freshwater water river.You and other participants will paddle and portage along almost six miles of the Bronx River, from 219th Street to Sound View Park. Enjoy unique views of the neighborhoods through which the river flows on its way to the sea.
This is a long day, 4 hours on water, with three portages which includes carrying your canoe ( on wheels) for .5 miles, as well as down two 19th century dams. Though a slow river, there are several points where experience in a canoe is a necessity. Please consider this before registering.
The trip does not include a shuttle. You will have to make your own way back to the start or home at the end of the trip in Soundview Park.
