Concrete Plant Park, formerly a working and then abandoned concrete plant, is now a park offering green space and waterfront access. It is also a key link between north and south sections of the Bronx River Greenway. Spanning the river in front of Concrete Plant Park is a NYC Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) “skim boom” that collects floatable debris. The DEP removes the floatables regularly, but if debris has accumulated it can be difficult to paddle past the boom—use caution.
