Opened in 1973 as Harlem River Park, Roberto Clemente State Park is a 25-acre waterfront venue located along the Harlem River in the Bronx offering year-round recreational and cultural activities. MNLA was commissioned to improve three key aspects of the site.
The North Shoreline project is one of three that MNLA undertook to improve a variety of active and passive open spaces at Roberto Clemente State Park. Intervention began with a master plan which resulted in design and construction drawings to improve shoreline plantings and views, re-configure active athletic fields, provide boat dock access, improve site circulation, address stormwater capture, and develop spaces for passive recreation. This northern section of the 25-acre park features a new baseball program, important to the park's legacy and to today's neighborhood residents.
