Park Passes are required at Greenwich Point and Byram Park beginning May 2, 2016 and Island Beach and Great Captain Island beginning June 11, 2016.

For Residents who possess a valid Resident Season Pass and a Resident Parking sticker, access will remain the same as last year.

It is important that park users are aware that the Daily Park Passes have been replaced by a Single Entry Park Pass.

A Single Entry Park Pass grants park users who do not possess a valid Resident Seasonal Pass, ONE entry into one of the four park/beach locations.

Single Entry Park Passes and Single Entry Parking Passes may be purchased at the Eastern Greenwich Civic Center or the Bendheim Western Greenwich Civic Center Mondays – Fridays 9:00 am to 6:00 pm beginning May 2, 2016.

Single Entry Park Passes and Single Entry Parking Passes cannot be purchased Saturdays, Sundays or Holidays at any location.

A Single Entry Park Pass is required for each individual (excluding children ages 0-4).  A Single Entry Park Pass is $7.00/person for those 5-64 years of age. Seniors (65+) are required to obtain a Single Entry Park Pass at no cost, but proof of age is required at the entrance to the Park.  All vehicles entering a Park are required to have a Single Entry Parking Pass which is $35.00.

Single Entry Parking Passes are not valid for use at the Arch St. Ferry parking lot.  Parking for the Arch St. ferry lot must be purchased at the kiosk located in the Arch St. Ferry parking lot.  A valid Resident Season Pass or Single Entry Park Pass is necessary per person to purchase a Ferry Ridership Ticket. Ferry ridership tickets are available for purchase at the Arch St. Ferry Dock.

Residents who have proved their residency for the year with Parks and Recreation can purchase Single Entry Park Passes online beginning May 2, 2016. To do so, visit
