The park offers a free After-School Program for ages 6 to 17, as well as a free Summer Recreation Program and youth sports development programs. Roosevelt Gardens Park features a teen program for students ages 12 to 17 years old. The park also offers senior programs that emphasize healthy living and nutrition. For more information on these programs, visit our Activities and Programs Web page.

We also feature the Walk With Ease program for seniors looking to stay fit. For more information on the Walk With Ease Program, please visit the program Web page.

The park is home to a Public Art and Design project by artist Cheryl Foster, who created a multi-piece artwork with panels located in the park's computer room and the lobby of the community center. The art takes the form of a series of tableaux that illustrated such themes as education, family values, diversity, sharing, learning, parents teaching and sharing with children, and strong male presence. The paintings are displayed above eye level and appear to float on the walls.

Bike Fix-It Station
Through a generous donation from FLIPANY (Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth), the newest resource at the park provides an area for patrons to complete bike repairs with a post for mounting the bike, all the necessary tools, and an air pump for the tires. The station is available for use during regular park hours.
