Theodore Roosevelt Island Park Map

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.
