Orangetown Weighs Plan To Make Non-Residents Pay To Play In Parks

Orangetown is considering residency requirements for its public parks, like Veterans Memorial Park. Out-of-towners would still be able to use the parks, but would have to pay a yearly fee.

ORANGETOWN, N.Y. – After hearing complaints from taxpayers about overcrowding in town parks, Orangetown is weighing usage fees for non-residents, according to a report by lohud.com.

Under the proposal, residents would have to register with the town and show ID of some kind when using certain parks, the lohud.com report said.

Non-residents could be charged as much as $250 for adults and $165 for kids ages 12-18, lohud.com reported.

The proposal has gotten mixed responses: some feel that it’s fair because residents pay for the parks’ upkeep, while others said that public parks should remain open to all, the lohud.com story said.
