Paddle the Bronx River

Every weekend in the summer (weather permitting), Rocking the Boat offers free community rowing on the Bronx River at Hunts Point Riverside Park. Lifejackets are provided and an instructor takes you out on the water, gives rowing lessons, and even gives some great history and information on the Bronx River. The best part? The canoes are made by students in their boatbuilding program and each one is given its own name. The park is also a great spot to BBQ and let the kiddos play in the fun boat themed playground.

If this heat just has you thinking about your feet in the sand and an ice cold drink in hand, then pack up the sand toys and head to Orchard Beach for day of fun. Crowds tend to gather in the middle, so venture off to the far right or far left to enjoy the sand to yourself.
