The large, paved, parking lot at Theodore Roosevelt Memorial Park & Beach has several handicapped spaces.  The lot is close to the flat walkway. It is an easy walk from the parking lot to the beach, and on to the playground, ball fields, tennis courts, and marina.  There are many benches for resting.

If you have never visited Theodore Roosevelt Park in Oyster Bay, you should put it on your list of special places to visit. We have been to many of the parks on Long Island and Roosevelt Park is one of the most beautiful, serene and easily accessible. It is definitely our favorite. When our kids were little they bathed in the calm waters of Oyster Bay Harbor, played in the playground (which has been beautifully updated,)  took advantage of the tennis courts and even launched a boat from one of the ramps there. Now we spend time jogging, walking, and just relaxing with a cup of coffee and looking at the fabulous view that rivals any locale in the world. Every season affords a different, spectacular vista.


On this unusually warm day in November, we knew that this was where we wanted to be. Armed with coffee and some fruit we found a spot in the large, paved lot. There are actually two parking areas, one near the ramps and the other near the marina. There are seven handicapped spaces near the marina and ten in the lot near the ramps. We parked near the launch ramps and made our way on the paved walkway all the way to the marina area and around to see if the restrooms at the end of this parking area were open. They were. These two stall restrooms are not handicapped accessible.


We then made our way back to the large playground. The rubberized terrain has swings, slides and climbing apparatus. There are benches from which one can easily watch the little ones. We stopped to see if the large, multi-stall, handicapped-accessible restrooms near here were open. They were. There are also multi-stall, handicapped-accessible restrooms in the building that houses the refreshment concession. These were also open. Know that “out of season,”  one cannot count on any of them being open.


Stroll the walkway, lined with smooth pavers.  Sit on one of the  many benches  and enjoy the view.  We noticed that they have added at least six  new benches to the ones facing the water.


If you are a town of Bay resident you can get a season parking sticker. If not, you can pay a daily rate. Otherwise, just visit “out of season.” There is plenty of “out of season” time to enjoy this wonderful, easily accessible venue.


We love this park. We think you will too!


As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.oysterbaytown.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
