Canoeing and Biking

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 the Education, Ecology, Greenway, and Outreach programs, the Recreation Program offers an an intimate experience with the river corridor and incorporates lessons, projects, and programs.

During the paddling season, the 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 also available.

We offer FREE Community Paddling out of Concrete Plant Park and Starlight Park on the last Saturday of every month within the paddling season 2016!
