Randall's Island Park Alliance is a nonprofit organization that supports Randall’s Island Park, which has the most athletic fields in Manhattan (over 60 new fields!), wetlands, Icahn Stadium, a new tennis center, a golf center and more.
The Randall's Island Park Alliance (RIPA) works with the City and local communities to provide an innovative and exciting destination through a wide range of sports venues, cultural events and environmental explorations. As the dedicated stewards of Randall's Island Park, the Alliance sustains, maintains, develops and programs the Park to support the wellbeing of all New Yorkers.
Randall's Island Park Alliance, Inc. (RIPA), formerly Randall's Island Sports Foundation, Inc., was founded in 1992 as a public-private partnership to work on behalf of Randall’s Island Park, located in the East River between East Harlem, the South Bronx and Astoria, Queens. In May 2010, RIPA finished rebuilding over 60 new athletic playing fields. Randall’s Island Park now has more than half of all the athletic fields in Manhattan, which will vastly increase the amount of playing time available for all New Yorkers. RIPA is working closely with the City and local community-based organizations to ensure that all the children of New York are guaranteed a much needed place to play.
