Young minds brainstorm to save aging Rye Playland
The City of Rye is turning to a key demographic to help save an ailing county-owned amusement park from going under completely. Dozens of creative kids met at Rye City Hall last night to brainstorm ways that the city could maintain interest in Rye Playland year-round. The "Town Hall Meeting for Children," organized by Councilwoman Catherine Parker, was designed to bring a new perspective on what can be done with the county-owned property after County Executive Rob Astorino invited local businessman and entrepreneurs to submit their proposals last year. Councilman Parker says that she plans to collect all of the ideas she gets from the kids and pass them along to Astorino and other county leaders in the hopes that fresh minds might bring some fresh ideas to the situation.
