Park Description:

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 carful 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. 

Trails Overview: The trails at FDR are blazed. 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. The Friends of FDR State Park are working on connecting the park to Baldwin Road.  A trail map link appears on the park's web page (use Contact Information below)
Directions: From the Taconic State Parkway, take the FDR Park exit. In season, there is an entrance fee daily; in spring and fall, the entrance fee is only on weekends and holidays.
