Rocky Point Scrapbook

Rocky Point is the source of many great childhood memories with my mom and dad - sitting on the shore eating clamcakes on Sunday afternoon was always something I looked forward to. Many great times were had in the park itself!! Come on RI - let's get together and save this place, the children of today need a fun place to make their own memories locally.

 Even if we never get our amusement park back, the land is such a waste as it is now. Stop the developers and build a nice state park! Maybe a huge playground for the kids! And revive the Chowder house!

Rocky Point was an institution in Rhode Island, and the source of many fond memories for me. It was such a shame that a great landmark had to fall at the hands of mismanagement of funding. It would be great to see the area reopened, and I definitely admire and support what your organization is doing.

Lived in Warwick most of my life and enjoyed Rocky Point and I would not like to see it developed.

Bring back our childhood memories so we can share them with our children.

I, the same as many Rhode Islanders spent many amazing and fun-filled days at Rocky Point, and I have some awesome memories I will never forget, I even recently purchased the Rocky Point picture done by Frank Galasso, as well as the Rocky Point ornament for my tree, I would love to see this land open to the public, even if the park buildings are gone it would still be awesome to be able to revisit my old stomping grounds.

I grew up in the Rocky Point area and spent many wonderful days there. I also worked at the Shore Dinner Hall - great memories of the park and the salt water pool.

I grew up going to Rocky Point every year as a child and have amazing memories even as an adult! I would love if my children could have the same opportunity to make their memories at Rocky Point!!

I have many fond memories of the place growing up, and was terribly sad to see it go. I hope the shoreline access can be saved for generations to come, and that it can become the property of the people of the State of Rhode Island, like it should be. While we have the Washington County Fair, which I think is wonderful, Rhode Island no longer has any State Fair since Rocky Hill closed. At the time, unfortunately, this idea did not take off at the old Rocky Point, but now that the land is cleared, this could happen again. Along the shoreline, it would showcase the beauty of the Ocean State. This land is too valuable to be developed into condos for the wealthy. It should go to the people who enjoyed and loved it for over 100 years! Whatever should happen, I think the line from this song is the most fitting tribute we can give to the park: 'Thanks for the memories!'

I remember going to Rocky Point in the summer when I was a kid! I was so disappointed when the park closed! Since that time I've always hoped that SOMEDAY the Rocky Point I loved would come back. Unfortunately, I now realize that was a exactly what I thought, a dream! I would love to see something good happen with the property for the City of Warwick Residents so we can still enjoy the wonderful Rocky Point which we all love!
