RYE, N.Y. – Rye Town Park will remain in public hands for now, according to a report by lohud.com.
A commission had been looking at proposals from four companies that wanted to run the 62-acre park but decided to reject them all after hearing opposition to privatization from the public and its own members, the lohud.com report said.
However, the commission is still contemplating turning over the park’s management to the city of Rye, which co-owns it with the town, and leasing a restaurant there to a private company, the lohud.com story said.
The park, which includes walking paths, a beach, and a parking lot, needs about $14 million in improvements, the lohud.com report said.
