CORTLANDT, N.Y. – Cortlandt will formally dedicate its new park facilities at Lake Meahagh on Saturday, according to town Supervisor Linda D. Puglisi.
The park is on Westchester Avenue and the public is invited to the ceremony, which begins at 11 a.m.
The town will also dedicate a tree planted in memory of Robert “Sinbad” Sinclair, a beloved employee of the town Highway Department, and a bench, which honors Jefferey Kessler, the late son of another longtime town employee, Thomas Kessler.
The younger Kessler, who grew up near Lake Meahagh, died several years ago.
“He (Sinclair) was a fixture in our community, and beloved by all, including me. He was always smiling and always had a kind word for everybody,” Puglisi said Monday.
According to Puglisi, the upgraded park includes a basketball court, walking path, community garden, and rowing dock.
