(631) 702-1743             

The Town of Southampton has been chosen by the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to receive a $74,999.00 grant to combat invasive species at Riverside Park.  Southampton is the only municipality on Long Island to receive this State grant.  

It comes at a time when the Town is ready to award the bid for final design plans to build the Park.  It also follows two State DEC Environmental Justice grants of $50,000.00 each awarded to FRNCA, the Flanders,  Riverside, Northampton Community Association, to help design and construct the park.   In addition, the Town received two Local Water Revitalization Plan grants and an Empire State Development Grant totaling $285,000.00.

Conceptual designs for the Riverside Park were presented to the Town Board last year that included a multi-phased construction plan proposal to incorporate a walking trail, fishing platforms and other amenities along the Peconic River.  The conceptual designs are available on the Town’s website at
