Theodore Roosevelt Island was transformed in the 1930’s from neglected farmland in to the thriving woodlands it is today. This parked is named after the 26th President of the United States who was avid outdoorsman and naturalist. Filled with miles of trail through woods and swampy bottomlands, this island is a fun visit for nature loving families! The park is free and open year round from 6 am-10 pm, but remember to check the website before your visit for any special alerts. Check the calendar to learn about different events including Ranger-led programs or just spend an afternoon exploring the trails, viewing wildlife, or canoeing and Kayaking.  The National Park Service has designed several kids programs to keep the youngest family members entertained and educated, including Become a Junior Ranger, TRACK Trails, and Become a Webranger.
