bronx river, portage, canoe, River Park
River Park (180th St.) features restrooms, play area, grilling, access to 2 and 5 trains, and a dam. A fish passage will be built into the dam that will include an improved boat portage system. Visit our website www.bronxriver.org for more information as it becomes available.
This is the most challenging portage. The portage is on the west, very close to the edge of the fall, so caution and preparation are important. Keep to the west as you approach the landing, and when traveling in a group, keep a safe distance apart. It is best to have at least two people move the boats, one to stand at the top of the wall, slowly lowering one end of the boat to a second person on the ground below. After the fish passage is built, paddlers will be able to carry their boats from the landing to the launch site via a walkway on top of the passage. Launch along the rocks at the foot of the falls. At high water, there may be strong currents at the launch site.
