Sara Delano Roosevelt Park is a 7.8-acre (32,000 m2) park in the Lower East Side of the New York City borough of Manhattan. The park, named after Sara Roosevelt, the mother of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, stretches north-south between East Houston Street on the Lower East Side and Canal Street in Chinatown, between Chrystie Street on the west and Forsyth Street on the east. The park, which stretches three blocks, is operated and maintained by the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.
The park cuts off Stanton, Rivington, Broome and Hester Streets between Chrystie and Forsyth streets, but is interrupted at Delancey and Grand Streets.
Land between Chrystie and Forsyth Street was originally acquired to by the City of New York in 1929 for the purpose of widening Chrystie and Forsythe Streets and building low-cost housing, but was instead used for parkland, and dedicated to Sara Roosevelt in 1934.
