In anticipation of high temperatures expected this weekend, the Town of Brookhaven extended the hours of its several local beaches.
Temperatures are reported to hit the 90s on Saturday and Sunday, causing hour extensions at Cedar Beach in Mt. Sinai, West Meadow Beach in Stony Brook, Corey Beach in Blue Point and Shoreham Beach.
Lifeguards will be on duty and restrooms will be open until 7 p.m. on both days. Davis Park and Great Gun Beaches will be open as normal from 11 a.m. until 5 p.m. These beaches are only open to Brookhaven Town residents.
The town’s Holtsville Pool will remain open as normal with two sessions daily from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. The pool is open for residents only, and online pre-registration and payment are required.
Social distancing is required and strictly enforced at the Holtsville Pool, town beaches and all town parks and recreation facilities. A Brookhaven Town resident parking sticker is required for beach and pool parking.
Stickers can be purchased online here.
