Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino today announced the extension of the summer season at Town beaches throughout the month of September. TOBAY Beach will remain open weekends throughout September, and will be staffed with lifeguards so patrons can continue to take advantage of the nice weather and swim in the ocean. Additionally, all North Shore Beaches will remain open on the weekends, but will not be open for swimming, as no lifeguards will be on duty. These beaches will continue to be resident only this season, as part of restrictions put into place due to the coronavirus.
Supervisor Saladino stated, “I am pleased to announce that the summer beach season in the Town of Oyster Bay just got extended for one full month! I know this has been a tough year for many of us here in the Town as the public health crisis of COVID-19 peaked here in New York during the spring and still continues to effect us today. So what better way to make up for the time we lost when we were advised to stay inside than by taking advantage of the remaining beautiful weather this month, and continuing to patronize Town beaches in a safe, responsible, and socially distant manner!”
As part of the extension of the summer beach season, TOBAY Beach will be open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays throughout the month of September, with lifeguards manning stands and protecting residents in the ocean each of these days. Additionally, the spray park at TOBAY Beach will be remain open each of these days as well for families with young children to take advantage of. Town beaches on the North Shore will also remain open throughout the weekends of September, but swimming will not be permitted at these locations, as no lifeguards will be on duty.
Weekend beach days at all locations will continue to be for residents only. For more information, contact the Beach Division of the Town of Oyster Bay Parks Department at (516) 797-4111.
