Sand Replenishment at Jacob Riis Park Beach
Sand replenishment at Jacob Riis Park Beach has begun. During this project, sections of the beach will be closed to the public for their safety. Replenishment is expected to take up to two weeks.
Doing Business With The Park
Gateway Business Services
In 2011, nine concession operators provided services at Gateway National Recreation Area. These concessions included food concessions, beach clubs and other recreational operations.
By welcoming the private sector as a partner in park operations, the National Park Service broadens the economic base of the region in general and the communities surrounding the parks in particular.
Parties looking for business opportunities are advised to regularly check this site and the NPS Commercial Services Program website. For further information, e-mail us at the Gateway Business Management Office.
Commercial Leasing of Park Buildings
The National Park Service at Gateway National Recreation Area has released a Request for Proposal for commercial leasing opportunities of Jacob Riis Park's Bay 9. Parties interested in this opportunity should carefully review the Request for Proposals (RFP) for more information and deadlines.
This RFP provides the opportunity for an interested individual or organization to submit a proposal to the National Park Service to lease one of these two properties. Whoever submits the proposal for the property, judged best under the RFP selection criteria, will be given an opportunity to negotiate a final lease agreeable to both the offeror and the National Park Service.
The NPS is seeking a Lessee to provide high quality food and beverage services and maintain the Bay 9 facility for a term of up to five years.
