On October, 23, 2021, the Town of Babylon in partnership with the Babylon Citizens Council on the Arts, Inc. (BACCA), dedicated a mural by local high school students in the tunnel that runs under Ocean Parkway and connects Cedar Beach to Cedar Beach Marina.
The nautical themed mural, designed by students from Amityville, Babylon, Deer Park, North Babylon and West Babylon High Schools, was facilitated by the Parks Department and BACCA through the “Babylon Together Project.” The “Babylon Together Project” is a long term partnership with the Town of Babylon Local Development Corporation (LDC) in support of our local arts community, small businesses and organizations through public arts projects. Local artist Ron Becker, who serves on the BACCA Advisory Panel, played a key role in facilitating the participation of local high school students under the guidance of their teachers for this project.
There are plans to complete a second mural on the other side of the tunnel involving students from additional Town of Babylon school districts in the spring of 2022.
