Randall’s Island Park has a rich history of hosting cultural events and continues to do so today. Throughout the year, RIPA provides numerous free drop-in programs such as walking tours, movie nights, waterfront activities and our annual Cherry Blossom and Harvest Festivals. In addition, large special events, produced by independent organizations other than the City and RIPA, offer visitors a great variety of exciting options – continuing the Island’s strong tradition as a central entertainment venue for New York City.
RIPA hosts over 300 free public events each year. These family-friendly drop-in events play an integral role in helping Park visitors explore the Island’s varied points of interest. For additional information contact our Public Programs team at [email protected].

Earth Day Volunteer Event!
April 22 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Celebrate the 51st anniversary of Earth day with Randall’s Island Horticulture and Natural Areas teams. Get hands-on with our woodland restoration project. Mulching the woodland path will provide valuable habitat for wildlife and expand park visitors’ experience. After mulching, our horticulturist leads a garden tour.
Work with our Natural Area’s team to help restore native plants and public access to our Little Hell Gate Salt Marsh. Salt marshes are some of the most productive habitats in the world and provide valuable protection against climate change. On Randall’s Island, they are home to more than 130 species of birds and 15 species of fish. After the project, our team will lead a salt marsh tour.
