RYE TOWN, N. Y. -- The city of Rye is one of five entities to express interest in improving and managing Rye Town Park to turn it into a profitable hub for recreation, according to lohud.com.
Rye Town Park Commission members are expected to talk about the different proposals at the board's April 19 meeting, with a final decision in June. Selected finalists are to be invited to make public presentations on May 17, lohud.com reports.
Ideas for changes include offering new features, such as kiddie rides or jet ski rentals, having a catering hall or a greenhouse, and hosting regular park events. Officials are hoping to make the park into something that will complement neighboring Playland, though some neighbors aren't sure they want something on that scale, lohud.com reports.
