A shimmering stretch of green amidst the sea of concrete, asphalt, and tightly-packed buildings, Sara D. Roosevelt Park provides a refreshing respite for residents and visitors of Manhattan’s Lower East Side. Named for philanthropist and Presidential mother Sara Delano Roosevelt in 1934, the park remains a vibrant common ground for senior citizens, children, and recent immigrants, as well as the more recent addition of artists and young professionals. The largest stretch of open space in the neighborhood, Sara D. Roosevelt Park caters to its wide variety of users by offering a diverse array of facilities and activities.

Highlights include the Golden Age Center for senior citizens, a recently renovated synthetic turf soccer field popular with local teens, several playgrounds for kids, a vendor’s market, and a roller-skating rink.
