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 exploration. As the dedicated steward of Randall's Island Park, the Alliance sustains, maintains, develops and programs the Park to support the wellbeing of all New Yorkers; the Island now annually welcomes over 3 million visitors. With the completion of 60 state-of-the-art playing fields in 2010, RIPA established the Park as host to more than half of Manhattan’s playing fields. The Alliance has also developed Icahn Stadium, an IAAF-accredited track & field facility; the 20-court Sportime Tennis Center; a renovated Golf Center; nearly 20 acres of renovated wetlands; an Urban Farm; and miles of waterfront pathways. RIPA also works to fund, implement and expand youth programs to make the most of these remarkable facilities. In partnership with dozens of local public schools and community-based organizations, RIPA provides nearly 20,000 children with free sports and environmental education activities each year.
