THE RANDALL’S ISLAND PARK ALLIANCE (RIPA) partners with the City, local communities and our generous supporters to offer all New Yorkers – from athletes to artists, from children to seniors, and from amateurs to world champions – the kind of parkland and expansive views that invite us to reach for our dreams. Today, RIPA works to expand community and youth programs, restore the island’s natural ecosystems and foster healthy and active lifestyles through the maintenance and care of 480 acres of waterfront, including more than half of Manhattan’s premier playing fields.
