Playland Amusement Park
Rye, New York

     The Westchester County Parks Commission purchased and razed Paradise Park and Rye Beach Park in 1927.  The new Playland Amusement Park opened just one year later.  The park's 280 acres included 7,900 feet of shoreline.  Five of the rides still operating today were built before 1930!  Operated by Marriott for two years in the 1980s, attendance dropped because the property was fenced in and an admission fee was charged.  In 1983, the park returned to ungated operation under management of the Parks Departments of the Westchester County Government.  At least eight coasters have left the park:
