Randalls Island Park Tickets

Randall’s Island Park is an outdoor concert venue, located between the East River and Harlem River. Developed in the mid 1930s by the then Park Commissioner, Robert Moses, Randall’s Island Park encompasses 400 acres of land. The Park, with both active and passive recreational areas, has met the demand for active sports facilities and open space for New Yorkers. Randall’s Island Park, known as Randall’s and Ward’s Island Park, at one time was two land masses – Randalls Island and Ward’s Island – separated by Little Hell Gate Channel, which has since been land-filled, about 30 years ago into a single Island.

The History Of Randall’s Island

Then known as Minnahanonck, Randall’s Island was purchased from the Native Americans in 1637, by the then Dutch Governor - Wouter Van Twiller, and was used variously for farming, as a station for British soldiers, and as a quarantine area for smallpox victims, for the next 200 years. In 1784, the Island was purchased by Jonathan Randel – for whom the Island was named, but with a different spelling. In 1835, the City of New York bought the Island from Randel’s heirs for $60,000.

From then onwards, the City built “a burial ground for the poor, a poorhouse, a House of Refuge for juvenile delinquents, an Idiot Asylum, a homeopathic hospital, an Inebriate Asylum, and a rest home for Civil War veterans on the island.” It was decided, in 1930, to clear all these institutions and transform the Island into a hub for recreation. It was during this time that the space between the two Islands was begun to be filled, and it took 3 decades to create a single large Island.

In 1934, a 22,000-seat football stadium – Downing Stadium - was built on Randall’s Island, which was the home stadium of the New York Stars of the WFL, and the New York Cosmos of the NASL in the mid 1970s. Later the stadium was used as a venue for rock concerts. The stadium was replaced by a new stadium – Icahn Stadium – which was completed in 2004, and opened on April 23, 2005. This stadium has 10,000 box seats and can accommodate 35,000 spectators.

Icahn Stadium in Randall’s Island Park has hosted the NCAA Championships, the USATF Championships, a number of soccer matches, and the Olympic Trials, and hosts around 100 meets each year.
