Rocky Point Scrapbook

I remember the park well. As a kid I couldn’t wait to go. Now, if some of this area can be kept public (espcially the view to the ocean) then I am all for it.

Close your eyes, sit quietly on the shores of Warwick Neck, if you listen carefully enough you can probably hear the laughter, smell the chowder and clam cakes or feel the excitement coming from the mid-way or palladium. If you can you're a Rhode Islander, welcome to the club. Saving this incredible site, full of it's memories, should be of the utmost importance to preserve it for Rhode Islander's for many generations to come.

I have lived in this area for most of my life, and that amusement park was the greatest thing me and my family and friends had. To build another park would be ideal, preserving the area is great as well, but to cover the land with houses or other commercial industry ... i am totally against it.

My parents and sister, Ernest, Alice and Constance Betters. When dad was home on leave from the Canadian Air Force in the 1940's. I hope these photos will find a spot in the Rocky Point scrapbook. I remember the drive to Rocky Point from Pawtucket and enjoying the salt water swimming pool. Then onto the midway collecting change falling from the pockets of riders on spinning rides. I don't remember the ride name, but it stood in the center of the midway nearest to the bay.

Hi my name is eric pagano and I wanted to say Even though it was sad to see rocky point park in the condition that it is in I enjoyed the chance to see the historic land mark. I would love to see the park rebuilt with rides and attractions and to see the tax payees money go to good of the people and the future of our state and children. I no the cost of making this happen could be out reach but consider the revenue it would bring to the state and what it could do for businesses. I would to see come back for kids and families, there is not a lot to do in rhode island for kids.

My first trip to Rocky Point as a child was in 1961 with my family. Twenty years later I brought my own children. Sometimes we'd just sit on the shore and share a bag or 2 of the famous "Rocky Point Clam Cakes" and have some very interesting conversations. It's amazing what children will talk about when in a relaxed setting like that! My prayers..let this peaceful place continue so I can share it with my grandchildren!

As a child, I rode my first roller coaster at Rocky Point with my father. My family went to enjoy the festivities at Rocky Point every summer. Making good, public use of the land would be wonderful. There are beautiful views and fond memories going to waste!

Rhode Islanders are so lucky to live in a wonderfully geographic area and we strongly support open space for all Rhode Islanders, especially coastal space.
