Location Along the Bronx River

Shoelace Park

Shoelace Park is a one-mile ribbon of city parkland along the east (left) bank of the Bronx River and part of the Bronx River Greenway.

Shoelace Park is a ribbon of land along the river that was set aside in the early 20th century for the creation of the Bronx River Parkway, the first limited access highway in the country.

Today, this historic roadbed offers one-and-a-half miles of uninterrupted running, biking, and skating in the North Bronx. The northernmost boat launch on the Bronx River is located west of the Olinville Playground near 219th St.
