The soon-to-open Legoland New York Resort in Goshen is sure to be a hit with families that have spent the last year in the throes of the pandemic, but not everyone is happy about the 150-acre theme park.
Some locals fought the project from inception five years ago all the way through its completion, according to the Wall Street Journal. They’re worried about traffic and how the park will change the rural town, but say their biggest concern is its impact on the environment.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has fined Legoland New York more than $600,000 for the impact of stormwater draining into the nearby Otter Kill Creek. Park officials say they have complied with the agency’s every order.
