Message from the Babylon Town Board
We hope that you and your loved ones are doing well and staying healthy during this difficult time. We have come a long way since the beginning of this pandemic and we thank you all for your continued patience and understanding as we navigate these uncharted waters. While we certainly have made great strides in combating COVID-19 in our area, we are not in the clear yet. Please continue to maintain social distancing and wear a face covering in public places, as these are the easiest effective methods to reduce transmission of the virus. By doing these small steps and using common sense, you will be doing your part to help get things back to normal.
The Town of Babylon is a strong community and we have stood together to face great adversity before. Please be mindful of those around you and show the same compassion for your neighbors that you have shown when we have gone through tough times in the past. With patience and empathy, we will all emerge from this challenging situation stronger and more united - just as we did before.

Parks & Recreation Information
Town of Babylon Beaches are open to RESIDENTS ONLY until 5PM. A beach permit is required for entry. Visit this page for the rules in place as a result of COVID-19 and for information on how to obtain a beach permit.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: While the town beaches are open, capacity remains restricted due to regulations imposed by New York State in response to COVID-19. This means that our beaches tend to fill up and reach full capacity very quickly, forcing us to turn people away. Before you leave for the beach, be sure to check the status of our beaches on our Town of Babylon Parks Facebook page or sign up for email alerts.
Knowing full well how important local business is to our community, the Town of Babylon and Babylon IDA have unveiled a variety of programs designed to lend assistance and provide necessary resources to these establishments and organizations during this difficult time. To learn more about these programs, please visit our COVID-19 Business Assistance page.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Town of Babylon residents and essential workers have gone above and beyond to lend a helping hand to their neighbors during this difficult time. Learn their stories here.
