Concrete Plant Park
1372 Westchester Ave.
Bronx, NY 10472
10 am - 12 pm
Concrete Plant Park is a revitalized waterfront park system, renovated by the Bronx River Alliance and NYC Parks department. The park is now a hub for recreational activities, including running/biking trails, waterfront seating, and a kayak/canoe launch into the Bronx River Corridor. The park also features a DJ booth for park events and a Foodway garden filled with completely edible plants! Help us protect and preserve this new park system and the Bronx River by removing trash and debris from the riverbanks.
Following the cleanup, stick around for a free tour of the Foodway - NYC's first sustainable community garden in a public park! We'll learn about how food access can intersect with city parks, taste what's in bloom in October, and hear about the groundbreaking initiatives that are around the corner for the Foodway.
United By Blue will provide all cleanup supplies, snacks, and water. Join us for cleanup games, prize giveaways, and a day of enjoying and caring for Concrete Plant Park on the Bronx River!
