Ponquogue Beach Pavilion Redevelopment

Ponquogue Beach Pavilion Facility 

Ponguogue Beach in Hampton Bays is the most popular beach in the Hamptons with over 106,000 visitors each summer season. The Beach Pavilion, built in the late 1960’s, has weathered many storms and this extraordinarily high use quite well. However, as described by one community member, the facility is "in need of some love" and modernization. With both objectives in mind, the Town Board commissioned a firm to evaluate the facility, gather community input, recommend design changes, and develop cost estimates for their recommendations. Now it is time to begin the renovation process!

After going out to bid a second time for work related to the redevelopment of the Ponquogue Beach Facility, the Town Board awarded the contracts to Construction Consultants, LLC for general construction, Plumbwell Services for plumbing, and NY Trenchless for electrical work at the September 25th Town Board meeting.  The renovation work began in October 2018 and will continue through the Spring with an anticipated completion date in time for the Memorial Day Weekend.  The facility will undergo various renovations including, new IPE decking and railings, siding, roofing, cupolas, interior hardware and finishes, expanded deck space, a new entrance and parking lot improvements.  During the construction, there will be no public access to the facility or parking lot as there will be demolition, construction and parking lot work taking place.  We understand this is a popular destination throughout the year and appreciate the cooperation of the public during this time for the safety of themselves and the workers on site.  We would ask that you utilize Tiana Beach and other beach access points along Dune Road during this time, including one located just east of the Ponquogue gate.  

Below is chronology of the process with links to supporting information and documentation.
