The Bronx River Alliance engages local residents in reclaiming the Bronx River as a natural, educational, recreational, and economic resource for the community. Our programs give Bronxites the opportunity to be part of improving the community for their families and neighbors. In an effort to bring first-class arts to the Bronx community, the Bronx River Alliance will be incorporating professional music and dance performances into our community events. The Amazing Bronx River Flotilla, to be held at Hunts Point Riverside Park on May 2, 2015, is a celebration of the outdoor health and recreation opportunities offered by the Bronx River. The Flotilla launches the canoeing season with free paddling, a fundraising canoe race, walking and boat tours of the river restoration work, and other recreational activities.
