  • For the open summer season, the first day the pavilion can be reserved is the Tuesday after Memorial Day and the last day to reserve the pavilion is the Thursday prior to Labor Day Weekend.

  • The reservation is for the pavilion only and does not give exclusive rights to the beach.

  • No reservations are available on:

    • Memorial Day Weekend (Fri-Mon)

    • ○ July 4th Weekend (Fri-Sun)

    • ○ Labor Day Weekend (Fri-Mon)

    • ○ Any date a TLA event is occurring (check the Tidbits for published event dates)

    • The last day of school for Medford Twp school district

  • Only one reservation will be set per day.
