As a tribute to our 32nd President, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, a memorial that traces 12 years of history was dedicated in FDR's honor on May 2, 1997. Located in West Potomac Park on the Tidal Basin (entrance is on West Basin Drive) the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial is outdoors and features waterfalls, shade trees, and a feeling of tranquility. One of the most admired statues is that of FDR with his little Scottie dog, Fala.
