Bronx River House, scheduled to open in 2016, is a marker of how far we’ve come in our mission to restore the river, develop the greenway, and cultivate a community of stewards who claim the river as their own. Today, parks and trails line the river, where only weeds, vacant factories, and trash-strewn lots existed before. Soon, we will have a fittingly beautiful and cutting-edge building to match the work that we do on the river!
River House is also a reminder of how a generation of children can grow up with this precious resource that we have in our midst—NYC’s only freshwater river! A National Water Trail!—in a way that just wasn’t possible before. A generation ago, there was just no reasonable way for children and parents to get to the water in the South Bronx. Now school children of all ages engage in real-world science on the river, and families bring their kids out to canoe on free community paddling days. Bronx River House will enable us to expand and deepen our river-based programming.
Bronx River House is also a milestone, indicating that we've grown stronger as an organization. We’ve grown up, and it’s time to move into our own space!
