A ribbon-cutting ceremony to officially dedicate Miamogue Point Park in South Jamesport will take place Wednesday morning.

The event, featuring Riverhead Town Board members, town employees and community members, will begin at 10:15 a.m. at the new park on South Jamesport Avenue.

The town acquired and developed the 2.31-acre Miamogue Point property by using Community Preservation Fund money and a $350,000 grant from the State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

“This new park will be forever preserved and will now provide open space, a new playground and valuable beach access,” Riverhead Supervisor Sean Walter said in a press release.
