Journey through the lower segments of the Bronx via canoe traveling south and back passing along Concrete Plant Park, Hunts Point Riverside Park and Soundview Park on this urban adventure. Travel to the connecting Long Island Sound and learn all this beautiful natural resource has to offer! Meet a new friend, as we have a limited number of canoes, we may as that some participants spread out among other canoes and/or sit in the middle of a boat.

This area of the river is quite a challenge as we will face tides and wind, therefore we will be restricting these trips to adults only.

This paddle starts and ends at Concrete Plant Park. Please note that although we will provide essentials for our trip such as tangent canoes, paddles and personal flotation devices, we will be unable to shuttle you back to the starting location. The 2 train is conveniently located blocks away from both starting and ending points.

We also ask that all participants arrive as prompt as possible for a speedy launch, there will a 15 minute grace period after starting time for any delayed participants. If you are running tardy, please do email paddle@bronxriver.org to let us know such that we might wait for yourself and/or party.


Please be mindful, we ask that all refund requests be made 48 hours prior to trip date and time.

All participants are to also abide by the Bronx River rules of safety and wear appropriate close toed attached shoes throughout the entire paddle.
