Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park (FDR State Park), not to be confused with FDR's home in Hyde Park, New York, is a convenient place to go for a walk on its wide trails, which have few elevation changes and little chance of getting your feet muddy. The trails are blazed, and on the easternmost part of the park, a road built by the Civilian Conservation Corps provides a quiet place to walk under tall trees. A paved path essentially paralleling the park road to the swimming area is handicapped accessible.
FDR State Park is a large multi-use facility with picnic tables, board rentals, playing fields, and a swimming pool. In-season and weekends, picnickers arrive by the car-full and busload, filling the park with sounds of people enjoying the outdoors and smells wafting from grills. During weekends in spring and fall, road races and walkathons utilize the park roads. On weekdays and off-season weekends, local residents walk, jog, or bike along the park roads in relative isolation.
