There Are Lots of Great Ways to Explore the Bronx River All Summer Long!
Paddle the river on one of the Alliance's Canoe trips -
advance registration required.
Stretch your legs on the monthly Bronx River Ramble
, free volunteer-led walking tours exploring neighborhoods along the river. Rambles take place on the second Saturday each month.
There are many ways to explore the Bronx River. Talk a walk along the river, or get out your bike or blades and reacquaint yourself with the deep pools and sparkling surfaces of this free flowing little water body. Bring a friend or a fishing rod. Organize a picnic or ball game. Remind people of this river that shares its name with a borough, a parkway, an avenue, and a cheer. Check out other ways to explore the river here
. For more information about organizing a private canoe trip for your organization or a class trip, contact Damian Griffin. For more information about our public canoe events, contact Josue Garcia.
In 2012, the lower eight miles of the Bronx River was designated a National Water Trail by the National Park Service in recognition of how far we've come in reclaiming the river as a recreational asset.
