From the time he was a child, Franklin D. Roosevelt spent his summers on Campobello Island. Today Roosevelt Campobello International Park is a memorial to FDR and stands as an example of the continuing cooperation between the United States and Canada. Roosevelt Campobello International Park is a combination indoor/outdoor site that is known worldwide and is a popular tourist destination in the Province of New Brunswick, Canada.
Franklin D. Roosevelt spent many of his summers at his summer home that was located on Campobello Island in the Bay of Fundy in New Brunswick. The focal point of Roosevelt Campobello International Park is FDR's 34-room residence, which has been preserved in his memory. The Park also serves as a symbol of the friendship between the United States and Canada. The unusual relationship has led to the join ownership, funding, staffing and administration of the Park by both the United States and Canada. Thousands of visitors each year travel to this site.
In addition to FDR's summer residence, the Park includes the Edmund S. Muskie Visitor Center, fantastic flower gardens, and four other summer cottages dating from the same period – one of which, the Hubbard Cottage, is open to the public. There are also many wooded paths and fields which offer spectacular views of the nearby bays, shores and islands and even a lighthouse.
