Approximately eight miles of dedicated bicycle and pedestrian pathways now run throughout the Park and along its waterfront, providing comprehensive non-vehicular access; further sections in construction will nearly complete the Island-wide system in 2016. These meandering pathways – free from cars, trucks, and buses – have radically enhanced the Park experience for strollers, runners, bicyclists and anyone traveling to and from the Island’s new fields and facilities. The pathways also provide links to and between access points in Manhattan, the Bronx and Queens, via the 103rd Street Footbridge in Manhattan, via the Randall’s Island-Bronx Connector, and via walkways along all three spans of the RFK Triborough Bridge. Increasingly, visitors are choosing to travel to Randall’s Island Park by bicycle or on foot, and the pathways are also used as a non-vehicular alternative for commuters between the three adjacent boroughs.
