Oyster Bay Town Councilwoman Michele M. Johnson reminds residents that the early sale of seasonal beach stickers begins on Saturday, May 13. Beginning that day, Town residents may choose to get their beach stickers at certain locations ahead of time to avoid the rush during the Memorial Day weekend when some Town of Oyster Bay beaches will open for weekends only.

“Many of us eagerly look forward to Memorial Day weekend for the first opportunity to enjoy a fun day at the beach,” Councilwoman Johnson said. “By purchasing a Town beach sticker in advance of the beaches opening, you can avoid hitting long lines at the start of the beach season and be able to spend more time in the sand.”

The Councilwoman noted that beach stickers will be on sale daily, beginning on May 13, at Tobay Beach, John J. Burns Town Park in Massapequa and Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park and Beach in Oyster Bay, from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. and from 1 p.m. until 2:30 p.m. Please note that stickers are NOT available at Town Hall.

In order to purchase a beach sticker, residents must bring their driver’s license and vehicle registration and must be in the vehicle they will use to drive to the beach since stickers are placed on the vehicle at the time of purchase. Only residents may purchase beach stickers for Town of Oyster Bay Beaches. Seasonal stickers are $60, which pay for themselves following three visits.

“Stickers are accepted at all Town of Oyster Bay beaches, so residents with beach stickers will have the opportunity to really enjoy the wonderful beaches we have here in the Town of Oyster Bay all summer long,” Councilwoman Johnson said.

Tobay, Centre Island, Philip B. Healey at Florence Avenue and Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Beaches will open for weekends only beginning Saturday, May 27. All Town of Oyster Bay beaches will open seven days a week beginning on Saturday, June 24. The beaches will remain open through Labor Day, Monday, September 4.
