community rowing and sailing
Through Community Rowing, Hunts Point residents of all ages explore the Bronx River aboard student-built wooden row boats, accompanied by Program Assistants who teach them about the local waterways. The free program takes place every weekend from Memorial Day to Labor Day. For three of those days, community members can also try their hand at sailing. Community Sailing, the City’s only sailing program offered in a low-income, inner-city neighborhood, aims to make sailing a staple of the South Bronx waterfront.
The following organizations have enhanced these on-water programs by offering land-based educational activities in Hunts Point Riverside Park:
Bronx Children’s Museum
Bronx River Alliance
Department of Environmental Conservation I Fish NY
Hunts Point Alliance for Children
Waterfront Alliance-City of Water Day
