ParkRockaway Beach and Boardwalk

Piping plovers are back at Rockaway Beach to nest through summer! It is important to share the beach with these NYS endangered shorebirds. To help keep the piping plovers and their nesting areas safe, the beach and shoreline from Beach 36th Street to Beach 57th Street is closed to the public.
