“A living memorial to Roosevelt”
In the 1930s landscape architects transformed Mason’s Island from neglected, overgrown farmland into Theodore Roosevelt Island, a memorial to America’s 26th president. They conceived a “real forest” designed to mimic the natural forest that once covered the island. Today miles of trails through wooded uplands and swampy bottomlands honor the legacy of a great outdoorsman and conservationist
Good place to come out to. I only took about 15-20 minutes out here because I had so much else to see, but you could easily spend an hour or two out here as there a number of trailheads as well as the memorial in the center of the island, with a lot to see. Thanks Teddy for starting our National Park system.
