The Bay Parkway is a 3.26-mile (5.25 km) semi-limited-access highway entirely within Jones Beach State Park in Nassau County, New York, in the United States. The western terminus is at a loop near the western edge of Jones Inlet. The eastern terminus is at the Jones Beach Amphitheater east of an interchange with the Wantagh State Parkway. The parkway is primarily a service road for the park, providing access to the boat basin, fishing piers, and many of the parking lots along the beach. However, the parkway also has an interchange with the Meadowbrook State Parkway/Ocean Parkway.

East of the Meadowbrook/Ocean interchange, the Bay Parkway is designated New York State Route 909E (NY 909E), an unsigned reference route, by NYSDOT.
