Location Along the Bronx River

Bronx River Forest

The Bronx River Forest, which extends south into the New York Botanical Garden, boasts many trees that are more than 100 years old.

If you are looking for a nature walk, the Bronx River Forest is the place for you!

The Bronx River Forest is a remnant of the original forests and floodplains that once blanketed the Bronx River corridor. Recent projects led by NYC Parks and the Bronx River Alliance have restored the river’s floodplain, increased habitat, upgraded the paths and nature trails, and added boardwalks and overlooks.

Today, the Bronx River Forest is an ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and observe the many birds and other wildlife that rely on the river for habitat and sustenance.
