Playland is home to the "Grand Carousel",one of only three "Derby Racers" still in existence. The Derby Racer is not a carousel for the faint of heart as it rotates at 25 miles per hour - three times the speed of a normal carousel. The horses move back and forth as well as up and down, simulating a true gallop as it races around the track.
Frank Darling, a veteran park manager with experience at Coney Island and the British Empire Exhibition at Wembley, was hired to design and run a new park, called Playland. Construction commenced in September 1927 and was completed in six months. A design firm was commissioned to decorate the entire park in the Art Deco style. The park began operation on May 26, 1928. The original design included a boardwalk, ice-skating rinks, a swimming pool, and two beaches, as well as amusement park rides

In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Playland's waterfront area of Westchester County, New York along the Long Island Sound was the site of a growing collection of recreational developments, including hotels, resorts, and "amusement areas". Local residents concerned about what a County report described as "unsavory crowds" induced the Westchester County Park Association to purchase two existing theme parks, Rye Beach and Paradise Park, and planned a local-government-sponsored amusement park in their stead.
Every seat on the deck affords you and your guests with breathtaking views of Long Island Sound. No mats or moorings, just miles of blue water to gaze upon while slurping our favorite shellfish or martini...
