One of the five main water areas of the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial in Washington, DC. This waterfall is described to be a conglomerate of all the waterfalls located in this memorial park representing a retrospective of Roosevelt's presidency.
It is said that water is a prominant feature throughout the Roosevelt memorial because Roosevelt found so much relief from the ailments of polio through relaxing and swimming in water. It was through Roosevelt's efforts that a young doctor named Jonas Salk became instrumental in developing a vaccine that would virtually eliminate the disease poliomyelitis.
