WESTCHESTER COUNTY, N.Y. -- The Westchester County Board of Legislators recently discussed a report on parking and traffic with representatives from Sustainable Playland, Inc.
Legislators learned that some peak attendance dates at Playland Amusement Park would bring in more vehicular traffic than could be handled by the parking areas proposed in the Playland Improvement Plan.
Traffic flow and parking have both been altered as a result of the proposed 82,000 square-foot field house.
“Today, we were given a lot of new information about getting patrons in and out of Playland safely and comfortably, and the impact some of the changes will have on parking availability,” County Board Majority Leader Catherine Borgia (D-Ossining) said in a statement. “There are now more questions, however, about whether the effort to make Playland a popular year-round destination meshes with SPI’s desire to keep attendance at a certain limit. I am eager to receive more information about how this will be resolved.”
SPI announced on Wedneday, March 26, that satellite parking areas will be developed as well, to deal with parking overflow on busy days and nights at Playland. Also, a private enforcement agency will be hired to keep patrons from parking on neighboring streets and walking over to Playland.
