Roosevelt Park

Size in acres: 1.5

Since 1919

Roosevelt Park is located east of the intersection of Main Street and Camp Allen Drive next to the St. Mary's River.  It has rivergreenway access and is only a short distance away from Orff Park

History:

The park property was acquired in 1919 and the people in that area at the time desired the park be called Theodore Roosevelt Park.  A movement was then started to secure funds from which to erect within the park a memorial to Mr. Roosevelt who was our 26th President and has been ranked by scholars as one of the greatest US Presidents.
