Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park is the first memorial dedicated to the former President in his home state of New York. Located on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island in New York City, it is the last work of the late Louis I. Kahn, an iconic architect of the 20th century. The Park celebrates the Four Freedoms, as pronounced in President Roosevelt's famous January 6, 1941 State of the Union speech.
Four Freedoms Park Conservancy is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established in June 2011 to maintain and operate the Park in partnership with the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation. The Conservancy offers free public and educational programs, and is responsible for raising the funds required to ensure it remains beautiful for generations to come.
The Four Freedom Park Conservancy’s mission is to operate and maintain Four Freedoms Park, a public space dedicated to celebrating and honoring the life and legacy of President Franklin Roosevelt and the Four Freedoms through educational initiatives and public programming.
