We host corporate events, weddings and special events.

Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park, a four-acre presidential memorial on Roosevelt Island in the heart of New York City, offers guests unobstructed, breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. Designed by the iconic American architect Louis Kahn, the memorial combines the monolithic forms of ancient Egypt and Greece with refined modern minimalism: a 100-foot-wide entry stair, a triangular central lawn, two allées of linden trees, and embanked walls all directing guests to Kahn’s open “Room”.

This extraordinary presidential memorial is available for private rental featuring a flexible outdoor space, and has welcomed corporate events, weddings, film screenings, concerts, and fashion shows.

The rental fee for the venue is determined based on the size and scope of the event and the set-up and breakdown time required. The Park must be closed to the public for most private events. 

Four Freedoms Park does not have any back of house or event facilities. In addition to the venue rental fee, clients are required to provide and pay for services such as event and catering tents, nighttime safety lighting, generators, bathroom rentals, ambulance service, and security. Four Freedoms Park is easily accessible via subway, tram, bus and will welcome ferry service in 2017. Limited vehicle access is also available.

We encourage a site visit as a first step and welcome your questions. For more information, please complete the private events form here or email us at
