My family loves exploring Roosevelt Island. Parking is limited, so it's best to get there early on weekends.
To find the statue of Roosevelt, cross the foot bridge and take a right turn, and then take the first left. You will also see some famous quotes...I have 3 boys, so I really love "manhood" and "Youth".
We usually head toward the swamp area. Make sure you take the smaller trails that lead to the Potomac River. My kids love the small beach areas.
We always take our binoculars, too. There's a lot to see and do!
