Address: Playland Parkway Rye, NY 10580
Rye Playland's 280 acres were intended to be the jewel in the crown of Westchester's extensive park system. The original design included picnic areas, restaurants, three ice-skating rinks, swimming pool, two beaches totaling approximately 7,900 feet of shoreline, in addition to the thrilling amusement rides. The concept of a family-friendly amusement park appealed to the people of Westchester County and the New York City region. First season visitors far exceeded even the Park Commission's optimistic predictions. Crowds flocked to Playland to ride the Whip, the Derby Racer, and more than a dozen other thrilling rides. Playland still boasts seven original rides that pre-date 1930.
