This is my second time here, once when I was younger. This memorial is well done. Tons of great quotes by FDR written on the walls. Loved that the statue included his dog and that there was one or the first lady as well!

Roosevelt's messages are captured around this excellent memorial. Well distributed to capture his legacy is also very accessible to anyone in wheelchair. It helps to visit with a guide to get the whole meaning of the memorial.

Powerful memorial that needs to be better maintained. Some fountains no longer work, which is a shame. I looked forward to visiting for the third time but was disappointed with the non working parts.
