Location Along the Bronx River

Duncomb Arched Bridges

Duncomb Arched Bridges, part of the original Bronx River Parkway, mark the entrance to the Bronx River Forest.

One of the best parts about paddling an urban river is passing under the many bridges along its length. There are over 75 bridges that span the Bronx River, ranging from historical stone ones built during the construction of the Bronx River Parkway to the modern steel ones supporting the Cross Westchester, Cross Bronx, and Bruckner Expressways.

A particularly scenic series of bridges to paddle under are the arches of the Duncomb bridges, which have carried the Bronx River Parkway over the river since 1925.

To paddle this stretch of the river, join us on an Upper River Run or follow our Paddling Guide (paddle.bronxriver.org) on a self-guided trip.
