Bay Beach Admissions

The Town is aware that many residents have inquired about the status of Bay Beach's Parking and Admissions. We are working with a new beach and parking pass provider to improve the experience for beachgoers. Until our solution goes live, admission and parking in the Bay Beach area (excluding town-owned parking lots) will be free of charge and a beach capacity limit of 2000 will be in place. Please follow our social media accounts for updates on Bay Beach Pass sales.


Beachgoers can purchase one of three 2022 Bay Beach passes to access the beach this summer (Monday to Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.):

  • Resident Season Pass (date available soon)
  • Commercial Season Pass (date available soon)
  • Day Pass (date available soon)

Resident Season Passes
The information regarding Resident Season Passes and the final date for purchasing Resident Season Passes will be available soon.

Day Passes
A Day Pass can be purchased at the Bay Beach main entrance for $5 each (cash, credit and/or debit) from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Starting in 2022 day pass fees have been increased to $10 per person on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, including holidays. Alternatively, beachgoers can purchase (credit or debit only) a Day Pass at a Bay Beach electronic terminal from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. or until beach capacity is reached. In 2022 Beachgoers will be able to purchase Day Passes online, weeks or months in advance to reserve spots on the beach before it hits daily capacity. Children 12 years and under are free. Proof of residency is not required to access Bay Beach.
