Rocky Point Scrapbook

I just wanted to add my support. I was at the outing Sunday with another grass roots organization that shares in the same vision: Rocky Point belongs to 'We The People.' I also want to echo the group I was with yesterday, Sunday, that RP needs to re-open as a theme park, with all of it's fanfare and history. Not to mention -- a much needed economic boost to this state and increased tourism. I would like to be in contact so please keep me in mind. Thanks, Matt

The ONLY right thing to do with this property is public ownership. Anything else is unthinkable.

Many teenage memories growing up at Rocky Point with the bands on Fri nights & ride all the rides. Shore Dinner hall for clam cakes and chowder- delicious. Pulling up to the dock off our boat to get them, or driving down! What a spectacular view and great times!

Rocky Point has a long and unique history here in Rhode Island. For over a century, it was a place where people gathered to enjoy nature's beauty and the company of family and friends. Its sweeping views of Narragansett Bay make Rocky Point one of the jewels of the Ocean State. We are delighted to have secured 41 acres and a full mile of unobstructed coastline for current and future generations of Rhode Islanders. I am committed to preserving Rocky Point for its environmental value, for its historical significance and for the many people of this state who hold Rocky Point dear in their hearts. I am now working diligently with the Rocky Point Foundation, the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and others to acquire additional land to make this the Colt State Park of the West Bay.

My mom used to take me there every summer when I was younger and then when I was 15 I started going with my friends until 1986 when i got pregnant with my daughter. I always loved it!!! I especially loved the musik express, it was my all time favorite ride and still is when I can find one!!! The only one that I know of nowadays is in NH @ Canobe Lake park. Who knows maybe it's the one that was at Rocky Point.

I moved to RI when I was a teen from Germany. I remember going to Rocky Point many times with my friends and having a great time.

I lived on the corner of RiverVue and Tidewater and I used to just open my bedroom window to see fireworks! Friends and I walked the beach right up to the park when it was low tide and we have many family films of swimming pool days! The traffic to the park drove by our house...if they knew the "shortcut" so we always knew when something great was going on and we joined in. There are SO many memories at Rocky Point for SO many people...it was a true Wonderland for us. I'd love nothing more than to see it preserved in some wondrous way!

I remember going to Rocky Point as a child and eating clam cakes and chowder at the dinner hall. I remember going there with my friends and riding the corkscrew. I want to be able to take my kids thru there so they can see what a great location it was.
