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 100 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

April 1, 1917 marks the date of the first passenger train to make its way over the newly constructed Hell gate Bridge.

Come join the Randall’s Island Park Alliance – exactly 100 years later – on a tour to celebrate this iconic structure! We’ll start at the Randall’s Island Connector and follow the bridge’s epic arches from north to south, ending at its longest and most grandiose span near the Randall’s Island Urban Farm.
