Randall Manor

Randall Manor is a North Shore neighborhood bound by Bard Avenue in the west, Henderson Avenue to the north and Forest Avenue to the south, bordered between the neighborhoods New Brighton and West Brighton. The neighborhood is named after Captain Robert Richard Randall, the founder of Sailors Snug Harbor.
Randall Manor is one of the North Shore neighborhoods that has been nearly unaffected by the construction boom that followed the opening of the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in 1964. With close proximity to the St. George ferry terminal, along with the presence of many parks and cultural centers, Randall Manor remains one of the most desirable and attractive locations on the island.
Randall Manor is served by a few local buses and an express bus, including the S48/98 and X30 that runs along Forest Avenue, the S46/96 that runs along Castleton Avenue, and the S44/94 that runs along Henderson Avenue.

Allison Pond Park

Tucked away in the Randall Manor section of Staten Island’s North Shore is Allison Pond Park, named after George William Allison, an engineer and the borough’s public works commissioner in the 1930’s.

The park, which is located along Prospect and Brentwood Avenues, is known for its tranquil and picturesque pond, which nearly all of the park’s activities center around. The park is a popular place for residents all year-round: on warm days, fishing off the ponds’ banks is popular, while in the winter, the frozen pond draws out bundled-up skaters and hockey fans alike. Outside the pond, visitors can stroll through the trail that meanders through the park or find a shady spot under the canopy of trees. In the early morning, dog owners let their pets run through its off-leash area.

Walker Park: This 5.28 acre park is located on Delafield Place, between Davis and Bard Avenues in the Randall Manor section of Staten Island’s North Shore. Walker Park is infamously known as the site of the oldest continually operating cricket club in the United States (Staten Island Cricket and Tennis Club, circa 1872), and the site of the first lawn tennis court in the United States, which was built in 1873.

Walker Park was originally known as Livingston Park; the name changed to honor Lieutenant Randolph Walker Jr., a local cricket club member who died in World War I.

Currently, the park has operating baseball fields, cricket fields, playgrounds, tennis courts, basketball courts, football fields and soccer fields. It is not uncommon to find youth sports activities taking place daily in the fall and spring, and is also the site of many programs sponsored by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation, such as free tennis lessons for children and fitness classes for adults.
