ATHLETIC FIELDS

Randall’s Island Park is home to 60+ fields, which is approximately half of all the athletic fields in Manhattan. These fields accommodate a variety of sports, including soccer, softball, baseball, football, lacrosse, field hockey and rugby. Randall’s Island Park has both synthetic and grass fields with a limited number of them being lighted for night play. RIPA works closely with the City of New York and local school and community-based organizations to ensure that the fields are available for New York City children, as well as adult leagues and teams.

Field permits for all Randall’s Island fields (except Field 10, the Premier Field at the Icahn Stadium Complex) are issued by NYC Department of Parks. Field 10 permits can be acquired by contacting Jaron McNeill. Click button below to request a fields permit

Red Flags

When weather or other conditions render a field unplayable, or when use would be likely to damage the field, we close the field, and mark it with a red flag.  Each morning, the RIPA staff inspects the fields to assess the conditions, identify hazards and prioritize the day’s work.  If we believe the fields are too wet to be safely played on, we will “red flag” them, and update the field conditions hotline (212-860-1830) and Twitter feed (@randallsisland). To receive the latest field status updates, follow us on Twitter:
