Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino officially kicked off the summer beach season with a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the many facility improvements and new concession services that will await residents who visit TOBAY Beach this summer.
“Many of us eagerly look forward to the summer and fun days at the beach,” Supervisor Saladino said. “My Town Board colleagues and I are very excited to show our residents all of the great improvements they will see at TOBAY Beach, including a refurbished spray park and a new playground being constructed by the marina. There are also new restaurant services overseen by the well-known Carlyle Catering Group, who were selected by the Town Board in a completely open public hearing that allowed residents to participate in the process and witness all deliberations.”
Supervisor Saladino noted that Carlyle Catering offers patrons affordable family dining at the beach and also an opportunity to experience two exciting new restaurants, “Mango Bay” and “The Crazy Oyster at TOBAY.” These two summer-themed eateries will offer outstanding fare and the unmatched ambiance associated with dining at waterside. There will also be affordable food options such as hot dogs, cheeseburgers and french fries. Supervisor Saladino added that beach stickers are not required for diners at the restaurants.
“There is truly something for everyone in the family and there will be special evenings of beachfront entertainment that will put everyone in the mood to kick back and enjoy one of the truly great summer destination locations on Long Island,” Supervisor Saladino said. “Our beach is now open and accessible to everyone looking to spend a memorable staycation day with us.”
Supervisor Saladino noted that 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. 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.
