Free Admission for Town Residents to TOBAY Beach this Friday, May 24th

Lifeguards on Duty throughout Memorial Day Weekend

Supervisor Joseph Saladino and Councilman Steve Labriola today announced free admission to TOBAY Beach this Friday for Town of Oyster Bay residents.  Lifeguards will be on duty Friday through Memorial Day, and return each weekend until June 22nd when weekday staffing begins.

Supervisor Saladino stated, “The warm, sunny days of summer are just around the corner and this free Friday offers residents a great opportunity to kick-off the Memorial Day weekend with their feet in the sand.  Whether you want to swim in the ocean or soak up the sun, TOBAY Beach is the place to be.”

Improvements are currently underway at TOBAY Beach, including an upgraded spray park and new marina playground.  These new amenities, together with new restaurants and concession offerings, free Wi-Fi access, free suntan lotion dispensers, and mobility mats for strollers and wheelchairs, further enhance TOBAY Beach as a premier destination in the Town of Oyster Bay.

Councilman Labriola stated, “Residents who enjoy spending summer days at the beach are welcome to make the sandy shore at TOBAY Beach their own waterfront property.  To enhance your staycation experience, we are upgrading the spray park and playgrounds for children of all ages.  Together with free Wi-Fi access and new food and beverage options, TOBAY is your home away from home.”

From Saturday, June 22nd through Labor Day, all Town beaches will be open for the season seven days a week with lifeguards on duty.


Residents can now purchase beach stickers 7 days a week at TOBAY Beach, John J. Burns Town Park in Massapequa, and Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Beach in Oyster Bay, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.  Beginning Saturday, June 22nd, stickers are available for purchase at all Town beaches from 8am – 4pm except TOBAY Beach where stickers are available until 5pm.

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 directly on the vehicle at the time of purchase.  Only Town residents may purchase beach stickers for Town of Oyster Bay Beaches.  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.
