Dartmouth residents, as well as property or business taxpayers in Dartmouth, can purchase the beach stickers and must provide proof of residency in the form of a valid license and vehicle registration. Residents looking to purchase a sticker for a leased vehicle must provide lease paperwork or a statement in addition to the registration.

Beach stickers cost $35 for residents, non-resident property owners and business property owners, and are $25 for senior residents and non-resident senior property owners 65 and over. Stickers are free of charge to disabled veterans with proof.

Residents and property owners who purchase stickers will have access to Apponagansett Park, Dartmouth Regional Parks and Trails, Jones Park and Round Hill Beach. Day passes for Jones Park and Apponagansett Park will also be available for $10 per day, with cash accepted at the gates.
