Formerly known as Mohansic State Park.

A scenic haven approximately 40 miles from New York City, Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park offers day-trippers a day of fun and relaxation. The park's spacious picnic areas, which can accommodate individual families as well as large groups, may be reserved in advance. The park's mammoth pool can hold 3,500 bathers at one time In addition the park offers a host of other activities for people of all ages to enjoy.

The park's oases of blue water, Mohansic Lake and Crom Pond, provide excellent freshwater fishing and boating. Popular catches include bass, perch, and sunfish. A New York State Freshwater Fishing License is required. Licenses can be purchased at town halls or at a variety of sporting goods stores. Both rowboats and pedal boats are available for rental however, a regional boating permit allows visitors to launch their own rowboats, canoes or kayaks. For an additional fee, rowboat owners may also store their boats. In wintertime, the water's tree-lined border provides a winter wonderland backdrop for ice fisherman.
Nature of the Area
Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park encompasses two water bodies, Mohansic Lake and Crom Pond, which provide recreational boating and are home to many native fishes, including largemouth bass, yellow perch, and bluegill.

A red maple-hardwood swamp covers 179-acres of land, which is almost 1/5 of the Park. Try to identify the many beautifully unique dragonfly species that can be found in and around the Park wetland.
History of the Area
The Hudson Valley's lower Hudson River watershed, where Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park is located, provides about 10 of the drinking water for New York City through the East of the Hudson Reservoir System. Bio-retention basins located around the Park, and planned construction of a new green parking lot, will help filter and protect this drinking water.

June 26 My favorite recreational park by Kathy 101
Mohansic State Park has many fun, outgoing,athletic,activities,to do. And they keep u busy. My favorite thing to do when I go there is go swimming. The pool is always clean and is very huge. The lifeguards also do a great job of keeping everybody safe and away from harms way. They have other activities such as boating, and golfing, but I ahve to say swimming is my favorite and one of the reasons I go there. I love Monhansic State Park and I hope they continue to stay open and never have to shut down.
