Saladino: Beach Stickers on Sale this Saturday – Beat the Crowds and Enjoy the Summer Season

Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino today announced that the early sale of seasonal beach stickers will begin on Saturday, May 12th.  Starting that day, Town residents can purchase 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 officially open for weekends.

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.  By purchasing a beach sticker in advance, residents can avoid the inevitable lines that often accompany the start of the beach season and spend more time with their feet in the sand instead.”

Beach stickers will be on sale daily, beginning May 12th, 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 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.

TOBAY, Centre Island, Philip B. Healey at Florence Avenue and Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Beaches will open for weekends only beginning Saturday, May 26th.  All Town of Oyster Bay beaches will open seven days a week beginning on Saturday, June 23rd.  For more information, contact the Beach Division of the Town of Oyster Bay Parks Department at 797-4111.
