Recreation Program

Get Moving on the River

We help everyone experience the river

Discover an intimate experience with the river corridor. Operating hand-in-hand with other Bronx River Alliance programs (Education, Ecology, Greenway, and Outreach) Recreation programs help you relax and connect with the river, and also integrate lessons, projects, and programs.

From May – October, you’ll find a full calendar of public canoe tours along all eight miles of the Bronx River within the Bronx. Chartered tours for groups and individuals are available as well. 

On these trips, you’ll gain more awareness of our river, delight in its wonders, and—oh, yes!—have fun. We know you’ll fall in love with the river once you experience it first-hand.


Introducing the community to the river and greenway through canoeing, kayaking, and bicycling, and more.
