Rye Playland opens for 2014 season despite uncertain future

County legislators want to have a committee vote on the plan by July 1. (5/10/14)

RYE - Rye Playland opened its doors today for the 2014 season with special rates, food and rides.

While families enjoyed the opening day festivities, the park's future remains uncertain.

An improvement plan for the county-owned operation has been pushed back over concerns about who will have the final say on what is built.

The conflict involves Westchester County, the City of Rye and Sustainable Playland, the non-profit group in charge of reinventing the amusement park.

Officials are scheduled to discuss the park proposal May 13.

The amusement park has been in service since 1928.
