Theodore Roosevelt Island
In the 1930s what once was overgrown and neglected farmland was transformed by landscape architects into Theodore Roosevelt Island, a memorial to honor the legacy of a great outdoorsman and conservationist. The architects brilliantly devised a design that mimicked the natural forest that once covered the island. Today, visitors can enjoy miles of trails through swampy bottomlands and wooded uplands that serve as a memorial to America's 26th president.
