The Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial is a unit of National Mall and Memorial Parks.
This presidential memorial is located along the western shore of the Tidal Basin, taking visitors on a walk through time as FDR's four terms in office are chronicled through quotes carved in stone and fascinating bronze artwork.

The waterfalls throughout the memorial are there for several reasons. First, they are symbolic of FDR’s connection to and love of water (he was Assistant Secretary of the Navy during World War I). Second, they block out some of the noise from the airport located directly across the Potomac River.
