The Randall’s Island Park Alliance is closely monitoring COVID-19 and its impact on the community. With over 380 acres of parkland, the Park is still open for all New Yorkers to enjoy. Please remember to practice social distancing – leaving at least six feet between you and others, and avoid all nonessential social interactions.

Although events are currently unavailable, we have many opportunities that can allow you to explore the park, while keeping yourself and others healthy. Please view the links below for our online, interactive activities that are available to help you explore the park. Enjoy virtual tours of the Park (including the Urban Farm), fun DIY projects, scavenger hunts and more!

While we continue to make changes to day-to-day operations, please note the following updates:

  • the Urban Farm is currently closed
  • all education programs and volunteer projects are cancelled until April 20, 2020
  • the Cherry Blossom Festival is cancelled
  • all athletic field permits are suspended and no group sports are allowed
  • Sportime Tennis Center is closed

  • all public gatherings are cancelled until April 20, 2020

We invite you to continue to check our website and social media – Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for updates.
