Directions to Jamaica Bay and the Rockaways

Know Before You Go

There are currently 3 service interruptions affecting access within this park.

ParkTribute Park

Due to the effects of Hurricane Sandy, this park is closed until further notice.

BeachesRockaway Beach and Boardwalk

The area of Rockaway Beach from Beach 116th Street to Beach 109th Street will be temporarily closed as the US Army Corps of Engineers begins sand moving operations. Once work begins in this area, we expect the closure to last approximately one week.

More information about the Army Corps’ work to replenish Rockaway Beach is available on their NY District website.


PlaygroundsSeba Playground

Seba Playground will be closed to reconstruct the current Seba Tot Lot into a playground for children of all ages. The new design will enlarge the toddler area by adding a custom spray shower, seating, and two new tot play units. Additional play spaces will also be added for 5 to 12 year olds, and will include a large accessible play unit, a second spray shower and seating area. These two play areas will be joined by 15 additional swings for both age groups. The site will also feature an accessible drinking fountain, attractive plantings, and a bicycle rack.
Anticipated Completion: Spring 2014
