One hundred people will hit the waters of the Bronx River tomorrow in canoes and kayaks for a five mile ride to kick off the start of paddling season. The 11th annual Bronx River Flotilla, sponsored by the Bronx River Alliance and the Department of Parks and Recreation, is to celebrate the revitalization of the waterway--a result of years of advocacy to clean up the river.
The festivities will include the unveiling of a brand new guide map to encourage more residents to use the river and to make sure paddlers navigate its waters safely. There will also be a celebration picnic at Concrete Plant Park around 1 p.m. More details here.
