The Bronx River Alliance paddled south on the 23-mile long Bronx River from Shoelace Park to embark on an incredible journey to Hunts Point Riverside Park as part of this year’s ‘Amazing Bronx River Flotilla’ on Saturday, May 26. The event celebrated the progress the Alliance has made to reclaim the river and provided funding for future generations to continue enjoying the natural body of water.

Councilman King (5th from l), NYC Parks Commissioner Mitchell Silver (c), the ‘Women of Woodlawn’ and other Flotilla participants were eager to embark on their Bronx River voyage.
