Location Along the Bronx River

Mitsubishi Riverwalk & Waterfalls

The Bronx Zoo’s Riverwalk offers scenic views of the twin waterfalls and insights into the freshwater river ecosystem via path-side exhibits.

The stretch of the Bronx River that flows through the Bronx Zoo was created by dams built to power mills in the 19th century. The mill settlement that sprouted up on the east side of the river became known as Bronxdale.

Entry to the Riverwalk is free and is open to the public during Zoo hours.
