How To Purchase a Beach Permit

On-line (Best Option)

Due to the closing of the Government Center because of Covid-19, we are experiencing higher than usual online applications. Please allow at least two weeks for processing and delivery of stickers. Thank you. 

The City of Stamford is encouraging people to purchase their beach permit online. To obtain the best results, please click the below link and follow the necessary instructions for your permit type. Once approved, you will pay by credit card and a beach sticker will be mailed to you. Until you receive your permit, please print your purchase confirmation page and place on your car dashboard.


City Park permits can also be purchased by mail.  Send a photocopy of your current car registration, a self-addressed stamped envelope and any other required documentation*** along with a check payable to the City of Stamford, and the permit will be mailed back to you.
