Passes, Permits & Parties

Beach Passes

Access to Arden's beaches is for residents and their guests. Non-residents are welcome, but MUST be accompanied by a beach-card carrying resident of Arden at all times. Beach cards are non-transferrable and must be carried by the individual it is issued to. Loaning your card to anyone is not permitted. We urge all residents to keep some form of identification with them at all times if they ever need to prove they live here, otherwise they may be requested to leave.

If you are not aware, your deed dictates that there is a $22.00/annum beach association fee. This fee is non-negotiable and is mandated by your property deed. By paying the annual dues, each resident is entitled to an ABI Beach pass. Passes will not be issued to those residents who fail to pay. Beach Passes are issued by the ABI Registrar. Annually, residents are required to fill out a form acknowledging the rules and providing updated contact information. Be prepared to show proof of residence to acquire your beach passes, if requested. In addition, a replacement fee will be charged for any lost passes. All of the forms that you need are located in the Documents section of the ABI menu.  If you have any questions, please feel free to use the CONTACT US form.

Parking Permits

Parking is available at all of the beaches and is for residents only. ALL cars parked on ABI property must display an ABI Parking Permit, or they risk the possibility of being towed at the owner's expense. The parking permits are not transferrable between vehicles and are directly tied to the license plate displayed on the car. The permit must be permanently attached to the vehicle in the area designated upon receipt of the permit.

Parking permits are optional, you do not need to purchase one if you do not intend to drive your vehicle to any of the beaches. Parking permits are issued by the ABI Registrar; $10.00 per vehicle permit issued. Annually, residents are required to fill out a form acknowledging the rules and providing updated contact information. Be prepared to show copies of registration information to acquire your permit.

Boat Ramp Permits

Boat Ramp Permits are available to residents only. All residents are allowed to use the various boat launches in Arden, but must display an ABI Boating Permit on their trailer, or they risk the possibility of being towed at the owner's expense. The boat launch authorization permits are not transferrable between vehicles and are directly tied to the license plate displayed on the trailer. The permit must be permanently attached to the trailer in the area designated on the receipt.

Boat Ramp Permits are optional, you do not need to purchase one if you do not intend to launch a boat from Arden boat ramps. Also, you do not need to purchase one just because you live in Arden and own a boat, you only need one if you intend to use our ramps.

Picnic Area Reservations (Parties)

ABI requires any groups planning to meet at our picnic areas to reserve the area prior to the gathering. Reservations are taken on a first-come first-serve basis, and a reservation does not guarantee that someone else will not be using the area. Reservations for the use of the picnic areas are for notification purposes only and your registration does not prohibit other parties from using the area at the time of your gathering.

Reservations are issued by the current scheduler listed in the NewsBuoy. If you do not have a copy, contact your ABI representative via the CONTACT US form and they will connect you with the reservation scheduler. A non-refundable reservation fee of $50 is required for each party.  Trash removal and clean up is the responsibility of the party host.  Any damage to ABI property is also the responsibility of the party host. if  you have any questions, please feel free to use the CONTACT US form. All of the forms that you need are located in the Documents section of the ABI menu.
