Although we've lived in the city for decades, this was the first visit to Randall's Island ...it's a bit 'difficult' to get to....MTA bus from upper Manhattan, drive (toll on Triboro ) or walk (like we did)....the entire length of the island is only about 25-30 city street blocks, so very walkable/bike-able. Facilities are quite limited, so bring your own... More

It is truly upsetting and disgusting. There is one kiosk in the middle of the island one portable bathroom by the soccer fields. This is such a shame and truly upsetting because thousands of children use these soccer fields daily! It is unsafe and filthy.

Fantastic location for a sports tournament, we had 230 teams, over 2500 players with over 4000 spectators a day... What a great location. Food Services was slow on day one, but sorted by day two.

My only view of Randall's Island thus far is with regard to the rather expansive field area utilized for outdoor concerts. I generally love outdoor concerts, and I've seen a handful of festival shows at this venue. While I greatly enjoyed the music & atmosphere each time, I thought the facilities, especially the bathroom facilities, were terrible. Granted, I haven't... More

We took our bikes and rode up the East river bike path and then went over the footbridge to Randall-Wards Island. It was so quiet you would never believe you were between Manhattan and Queens. We were able to ride without interruption and enjoy the spectacular views of the East River and Manhattan. Admittedly, the time we went was in... More

Wards Island & Randalls Island are 2 islands, joined by landfill in the 1930's, in the sound east of Manhattan. The East River is to the south-west, the Harlem River to the north, & the Long Island Sound to the east; all are sounds, not bona fide rivers. Across the water, Manhattan's East Harlem neighborhood is to the west, the... More

We biked over from Harlem and down through the park. It was a nice ride. Surreal in the sense that we did not see another living soul from the RFK bridge until we were almost out of the park. 15 minutes of biking in NYC on a Wednesday and 1 pm and not a living person in sight. We were... More

Great park. Lots of space and pretty easy to get to. Triborough bridge by car and theres even a walkway from 103rd street in Manhattan that contains an FDR Drive overpass and bridge to get to Randalls Island. A lot of things to do. Scenic views of uptown and some bridges including the RFK bridge. Great for a picnic, bike... More

Nice softball park that was easily reachable from Paramus NJ. Though once you are there you are kind of stuck unless you want to pay hefty tolls to re-enter.
