Bronx River Greenway

Trail Map

Description Suggest an Edit

The Bronx River Greenway will one day stretch 23 miles along the river through New York's Westchester and Bronx counties. Currently, 18 miles of the trail are complete in disconnected segments largely paralleling the Bronx River Parkway. The pathway is part of the Bronx River Reservation, an 807-acre linear park that was established when the Bronx River Parkway was being built. The road opened in 1925.

The pathway's paved sections include: a 1-mile loop near Oak Street in Mount Vernon beginning and ending at Oak Street; 4.6 miles between Palmer Road in Bronxville and Crane Road at Scarsdale Avenue in Scarsdale, with a loop around the small lake in Bronxville; 5 miles between Greenacres Avenue in Hartsdale and Kensico Dam Plaza in Valhalla; as well as several miles east of Woodlawn Cemetery, along Bronx Park, and through Starlight Park and Sound View Park.

One of the more unusual sights along the way are the tall silos of Concrete Plant Park, which pay homage to New York City's industrial past. The seven-acre site also features a boat launch, waterfront promenade, and chess tables.

During spring and autumn, portions of the Bronx River Parkway are closed to motor vehicles, making a nice alternative to the path for bikes and other trail users.
