Acquired and dedicated in 1941, this park is named for Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882-1945), the 32nd President of the United States, who led the country through the Great Depression and World War II. Like his distant cousin Theodore Roosevelt (1858-1919), he received a Harvard education and became an active participant in New York State politics before becoming a national figure. Roosevelt was elected President in 1932 and was reelected three times, serving until his death—a tenure longer than that of any other US President.
