Playland's open observation area for view of reconstruction


Part of Playland’s Castaway Cove remains walled off after the Jan. 30 fire. Visitors made their way to the park through a side entrance.

OCEAN CITY — Boardwalk visitors can now watch the gradual progress of Playland's Castaway Cove's rebuilding efforts.

The park recently completed work on an observation area, giving members of the public a direct view of the reconstruction area after a Jan. 31 destroyed the building housing an arcade, office space and the power supply for a number of rides.

Playland's is still open weekends through a side entrance.
