This 7.85-acre park on the Lower East Side was named after the mother of F.D.R. Families can take advantage of the multiple playgrounds (several of which are wheelchair accessible) scattered throughout the greenspace.

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.
