Randall’s Island Park is one of New York’s City’s most unique and multi-faceted public parks. Located in the middle of the City, the park comprises most of an island in the East River that is situated between Manhattan, The Bronx, and Queens. Featuring a wide array of fields and spaces, Randall’s Island is home to a world class Tennis Center, a full service Golf Center, an IAAF-certified track and field facility (Icahn Stadium), over 60 playing fields, miles of waterfront bike and pedestrian pathways, and a newly renovated Event Lawn where concerts and festivals are held. Over the years, the island has undergone a remarkable transformation, thanks to the city of New York and the Randall’s Island Parks Alliance (RIPA), which oversees and governs the island. Thanks to their hard work and tremendous vision, RIPA has revived the park to what it is today.
