Theodore Roosevelt Island in Washington is the perfect memorial for our most conservationist minded president. this wooded island in the Potomac River situated between Washington and Virginia has some walking paths leading to the memorial. This island of overgrown farmland was transformed into a living memorial to Theodore Roosevelt our 26th president. The parking area on the George Washington Memorial Parkway leads to a foot bridge going to the island. On the island there are two miles of walking paths and a centrally located memorial with a statue of Roosevelt and inscribed monoliths.
