Owned and operated by Westchester County, Playland has the distinction of being America’s first totally planned amusement park and prototype for today’s successful theme parks. Dedicated as a National Historic Landmark in 1987, Playland has provided family fun since 1928. The park is highlighted by Art Deco structures and a distinct grass and flower covered mall. Often referred to as “Rye Playland”, Playland is America’s only government owned and operated amusement park.
Over the years we have completed many successful restoration and upgrade projects at this wonderful facility. All work is designed in consideration of the aesthetic beauty of the site and its buildings. Our efforts have helped the County maintain the Park’s old-time feel while providing modern entertainment and amenities.
