From the beautiful beaches of our historic waterfront village, to the top of our uptown area, Port Jefferson Village offers multiple playgrounds with beautiful parks for games and sports, along with many little welcoming pocket parks for an area to rest or just enjoy.
Our East and West Beaches are over two miles of shoreline with parking facilities for Village residents, offering fishing, sunbathing or just strolling on the sand. The beach includes an area for picnic tables, a swing set play area, and staffed facilities for safety and enjoyment. Beaches are open from mid-June until Labor Day, with lifeguards on duty from 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM, daily. Group party areas are available (permit required for groups of 15 or more). Call (631) 473-4778 for more information.
Fronting along the water is The Jeanne Garant Harborfront Park, home to our Village Center. The large grassy picnic areas are opened to the spectacular view of Port Jefferson Harbor. Landscaped walkways lead to the pier jetting 350 foot out onto the harbor. The children’s play area includes a misting sprinkler along with several game and picnic tables.
