Few experiences compare with being on the open water in New York City.  Our trained Urban Park Rangers will lead you on canoe adventures that range from the gentle waters of protected lakes to the challenging open waters of rivers and bays.  

Enjoy the Fresh Creek Nature Preserve waterside. Enjoy views of egrets, herons, gulls, and much more.  

Participation in a mandatory safety review led by a trained Ranger is required. For ages 8 years old and up.  Individuals participating in this program need to demonstrate prior canoe experience.  

Please note: Participants are chosen by lottery. To enter your name in the lottery, visit nyc.gov/parks/rangers/register. Registration opens on Wednesday, October 23.
