A resident beach permit offers you unlimited entrance into the Town of Babylon's ocean and bay beaches for the entire summer. The permits are available to all Town of Babylon residents for a small fee. For your convenience resident beach permits can be purchased in three locations; the Tax Receiver's Office in Town Hall located at 200 E Sunrise Highway in Lindenhurst, the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs located at 151 Phelps Lane in North Babylon, and at Cedar Marina located off Ocean Parkway.
Yes, residents and non-residents can gain access to all the ocean and bay beaches (except Overlook beach) by paying an entrance fee. The fees vary from weekdays, weekends, and holidays. However, for avid beach goers we suggest that you purchase a resident beach permit. By the middle of May every Town resident should receive a guide in the mail. If you do not receive your Recreation Guide by the third week in May ask your postman if he or she has any or stop by and pick one up at Town Hall or the Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs.
The Department of Parks, Recreation, and Cultural Affairs offers pool plans for families of four as well as individual pool plans.

If you are a resident who chooses not to purchase a pool plan or a non-resident you can purchase daily pool tickets at the pool you wish to visit. Please note that non-residents pay a higher daily pool fee than residents of the Town of Babylon.
In order to enroll in Day Camp children must have completed kindergarten. Children that have completed the sixth grade and are 12 years old are still eligible for day camp but those children who have completed the seventh grade and are 12 are not eligible for Day Camp.

Again, only rely on the fun pass for registration if you know all the children you wish to register are listed on your fun pass.
