Do you ever feel the need to escape the hustle and hassle of Philadelphia? When you do, look no further than historic FDR Park, a green oasis
in South Philadelphia. With its beautiful natural resources including fields and lakes, FDR Park is the ideal retreat for all ages and personalities for relaxation and recreation. From fishing to golfing, boating to baseball, this park has it all.

year, a new top flight restaurant overlooking the lake, and paddle boat
and bike rentals.
