History

Roberto Clemente State Park, originally named Harlem River State Park, opened in 1973 and was the first New York state park established in an urban setting.[3][4] The park was renamed in 1974 for Roberto Clemente, the first Latino-American to be inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. Clemente was killed in an air crash while trying to assist relief efforts after the 1972 Nicaragua earthquake.[1][5]

The park benefited from the partnership of nonprofit New York Restoration Project and New York City Department of Parks and Recreation.[clarification needed]

Park description

Roberto Clemente State Park offers a recreation building, a swimming pool, picnic tables, a playground, recreation programs, ball fields and basketball courts, biking, and a waterfront esplanade.[1]
