Estella Diggs Park encourages kids and New Yorkers of all ages to come outside and engage with the Morrisania community, in keeping with the spirit of Estella Diggs herself. Formerly known as Rocks and Roots Park, the park was named after Estella Diggs, the first African-American woman to represent the Bronx in the NY State Assembly. The park features gently sloping hills that evoke a Chinese landscape painting, along with accessible walking paths, seating, and play equipment perfect for children ages two to five.
