Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms State Park

Skip Navigation LinksHome : State Parks : Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms State Park

Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park is located on Roosevelt Island in New York City. The park, designed by architect Louis I. Kahn, is free to the public.

Its name derives from a January 6, 1941 speech delivered by President Roosevelt, in which he described his vision for a world founded on four essential human freedoms: freedom of speech and expression, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear.

The park is operated in partnership with the Four Freedoms Park Conservancy and offers visitors a free interactive digital educational resource, accessible on any mobile device.

For more information, please visit: http://www.fdrfourfreedomspark.org/ or read the press release announcing the state park from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo here.



We ask you to please honor this Presidential memorial by not bringing dogs or other pets to the park.
