Wag! Walkers know Randals-Wards Island

Randall's Island and Wards Island are connected islands. They are technically part of the New York borough of Manhattan, located just across the Harlem River from the north central area of the island. This island has a small, residential population and is the location of a wastewater treatment plant, athletic field, a driving range, parks and greenways, a cemetery, and two psychiatric hospitals.  A police station, fire academy, and homeless shelters are also located on this small island.

 There are few businesses on the island to access and most services require travel across one of the bridges to the mainland or Manhattan.  Because of the islands small size and many pedestrian ways, area residents are able to reach most areas on the island on foot. This is great for pet owners who can enjoy exploring the community with their dog. The community also features three music festivals, hosted throughout the year, just a short walk from residential areas.

What is the terrain like in Randals-Wards Island?

Gate Bridge, Triborough Bridge, Randall's Island Connector, and Robert F. Kennedy Toll Bridge all connect the island to the mainland and Manhattan.  Many of these main bridges have pedestrian walkways and the Wards Island bridge is a dedicated pedestrian and cycling bridge which connects to East Harlem. There is a large wastewater treatment plant located on the east side of the island and this industrial area is not accessible on foot.

The Robert F. Kennedy Toll Road runs through the centre of the island, however, there are several pedestrian crossings under this elevated roadway to allow pedestrians and pets to cross safely to the other side of the island. There is a large park in the north, several greenways, and sports fields throughout the islands, that provide varying developed terrain. Roadways accessing these areas curve and loop and do not follow a grid pattern which makes them great walking paths.

How many greenways are there in Randals-Wards Island?

Randalls-Wards Island has many greenways, some of which connect to the 3000 mile East Coast Greenway that runs from Maine to Florida, so if you want to go for a really long walk with your dog you're set!

The island itself features several miles of waterfront pathways to enjoy with your canine companion. In the north, the Randall's Island Park is dog friendly, and allows off leash dogs in all areas except where marked, such as playgrounds and sports fields.

Wards Island Park is another large park, further south on the island, that has sports and recreation facilities, a playground, and picnic areas.  Dogs need to be on leash in this park.

Parks and greenways may take you in or near protected natural areas such as the Little Hells Gate Salt March or gardens such as the Water's Edge Garden. Watch for signage regarding access for dogs to these areas and leash regulations.
