  • OK we just went to the pool today and I have to tell you that for this being in Yorktown Heights this pool is trash. Do not expect anything nice here and the web page says no music is allowed at all.....  more »
  • Terribly loud and dirty park. People think it’s ok to blast music from their cars and leave trash everywhere. Save your 10$!!!!!  more »
  • FDR is a great place to visit. My family & i go there frequently every summer. The renovations over the years have made the park even more inviting. The pool is huge & fun & the kids park is great, we love it there. They have many activities, fun for all.
  • $10 to get in, but it’s a large, beautiful, well-kept park. I played Disc Golf here and the course is excellent, with good signage, good fairways, good baskets, and nice course design. In two hours, not even looking for wildlife, I saw an orb weaver spider, a hornet’s nest, a turkey vulture, and a beautiful hawk, among others. Nice place to walk around, but always be careful about ticks!
