Theodore Roosevelt Park has one of the largest dog runs in New York City’s parks, named Bull Moose Dog Run after Roosevelt’s Progressive Party. Today, Theodore Roosevelt Park pays tribute to a dedicated conservationist and serves as a place of rest and relaxation for local residents and museum visitors alike.
