Randall's Island Park Trails Description

Randall's Island Park Trails offer a series of interconnected paved loops on an island in the New York City borough of Manhattan. The park offers a quiet setting, especially enjoyed by runners, with views of the skyline and access to plentiful amenities, like restrooms and water fountains. Numerous recreational facilities are also available in the park, including baseball fields, tennis courts and stadiums. Natural backdrops include wildflower meadows and a salt marsh.

Pedestrian crossings over the Harlem River connect the trail to downtown Manhattan. An adjoining trail, the Randall's Island Connector, crosses the Bronx Kill waterway, providing access to Bronx residents. On the southeast end of the island, the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge Pedestrian Walkway over the East River connects the trail system to Queens.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available on the north end of the island off Bronx Shore Road, as well as by the baseball fields off Sunken Meadow Loop.

Randall's Island Park Trails Reviews

pretty good

Really nice views. Could get confusing so use TrailLink maps to get around. It has sewer smell at parts of the island. Lot’s of people BBQing all around.

Baseball and soccer fields, views of Manhattan's east side

As of July 2019 the paved surfaces ranged from fair to excellent but were mostly good. Intersecting loops and dead ends provide approximately 12 miles of trails but these were non-continuous secondary to construction blockages. This trailway is scheduled to be completed in the spring of 2020. The trails pass mostly baseball fields, soccer fields, picnic areas and municipal storage lots which give parts of the park an industrial feel. There are several good quality bathrooms attached to snack bars along the trail. The views of east Manhattan and the standing waves in the Hell's gate section of the East River are excellent. On the island you may also pass Icahn Stadium, The New York Police Department Harbor Unit, John McEnroe Tennis Academy, a native plant garden and the Manhattan Psychiatric Center Hospital (formerly known as Blackwell's Island Lunatic Asylum).
