Don't come to Sara D. Roosevelt park expecting a picturesque, grand park. The narrow park that lies between the Lower East Side and Chinatown is just a green space for those in the area. Definitely nothing special, but they sometimes host different events here, including a dumpling festival. It's a good quick park to walk through post dim sum in Chinatown or post afternoon drinking the LES.

Long, skinny park on Lower East Side that is about half a block wide but stretches over several blocks long.  Playgrounds, basketball courts, water features, a track at south end, benches, and an open area at north end, and astro turf field.  Have seen punk shows at the open area of north end of park.  Sometimes a bit sketchy, but has greatly improved over last decade.  Tons of Asian restaurants in surround area.
