Randall’s Island, located on the East River between East Harlem, the South Bronx, and Queens, has a lot to offer. Along with waterfront views, pedestrian trails, and a 40,000 square foot, environmentally sustainable urban farm, there are lovely cherry trees to view along the western shoreline.

This year, the park has created a variety of activities you can take part in virtually. On the Randall’s Island Park website, you will find a virtual tour of the cherry blossoms, a print-out brochure with a blossom map and activities, coloring pages for kids and more!
