Upper River Paddle – CANCELLED

Event Details

Shoelace Park kayak launch
Start Time
End Time

Due to heavy storm damage from Ida, there is a significant blockage in the upper river section that is preventing safe passage through the area. Unfortunately, it’s unlikely to be cleared before the end of our paddling season.


Join us on Saturday, October 16, 2021 for an Upper River Paddle on the Bronx River! This guided paddle starts at the Shoelace Park boat launch at 219th Street and ends at the Bronx Zoo Mitsubishi Riverwalk. It takes paddlers through some of the more heavily forested sections of the river, including old-growth forest within the New York Botanical Garden that pre-dates European colonization of the area.
