What are the responsibilities of the Department of Parks & Recreation?
The Department of Parks & Recreation is responsible for managing the various programs and recreational activities that the Town provides. Full-time employees and part-time seasonal personnel staff its various facilities during the Summer months.


This department oversees the Town's parks, beaches and marinas, pools, spray parks and an 18 hole par three golf course at Cedar Beach. The main office is located at 151 Phelps Lane in North Babylon and the phone number is (631) 893-2100.


Each Summer the department publishes the Summer Directory listing the programs that it administers. Such programs include: special events like the Beach Blast; recreation programs such as swimming lessons, day camps, dancing and many others; sports programs and leagues; kayaking; tennis and many others.


A full listing of offerings can be reviewed in the Summer Directory, a directory available at Town Hall or the Parks & Recreation Office. Any resident can register for a program. The Department of Parks & Recreation also issues permits for those seeking to use one of the many Town facilities for recreational purposes.
