TOBAY, Centre Island, Florence Avenue & Theodore Roosevelt Beaches Opening Weekends for Residents
Residents anxious to get their summer started a little early this year can visit certain Town of Oyster Bay beaches on weekends beginning Saturday, May 26th. Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilman Tom Hand announced that TOBAY, Centre Island, Philip B. Healey at Florence Avenue and Theodore Roosevelt Beaches will open for business every weekend and on Memorial Day until beaches open daily on June 23rd.
Supervisor Saladino stated, “The summer season is nearly upon us, and many residents are eagerly looking forward to Memorial Day weekend for the first opportunity to enjoy a sun-filled fun-day at our beaches. Our residents are invited to come enjoy the start of the beach season and spend some time with your feet in the sand.”
Beach stickers are on sale daily at TOBAY Beach, John J. Burns Town Park in Massapequa and Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park and Beach in Oyster Bay, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. To purchase a resident beach sticker for your vehicle, residents must present their vehicle registration and bring the vehicle they plan to drive to the beach since stickers are placed on the vehicle at the time of purchase. Only Town residents may purchase beach stickers for Town of Oyster Bay Beaches.
Councilman Hand added, “Beach lovers can get an early start on enjoying the magnificent Town facilities during the weekend before they open full time for the summer. From Saturday, June 23, through Labor Day, all Town beaches will be open for the season seven days a week.”
Seasonal stickers are $60, which pay for themselves following three visits. Residents aged 60+ qualify for a Senior Beach ID at the Town Clerk’s Office for a one-time fee of $32. Additionally, volunteer firefighters, U.S. Coast Guard members, Armed Forces service members, and veterans all qualify for seasonal beach passes at reduced rates.
