Rocky Point Scrapbook

Some of my most cherished memories from when I was a child & teen are from Rocky Point. ALL the people of Rhode Island, every generation, should have access to this beautiful site.

I have very fond memories of Rocky Point when I was a kid. Warwick needs place to walk and have family picnics etc. Please save this land for the Warwick citizens.

I grew up in Warwick and a staple of my childhood was Rocky Point Park! I can still remember the butterflies I would get in my stomach as we drove under the Rocky Point arch! As a teen I would meet up with or go with my friends to enjoy the fun or just see who else was there. As a young mother I was fortunate to enjoy the park with my son. I was never so sad as the day the park was closed and then subsequently demolished. If we can't bring the amusement park back I would at least love to be able to enjoy the grounds beautiful water views. I FULLY support public access to this property!

 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 a great place to go on a warm summer evening. I remember sitting on the small grass hill near the office, waiting for 4th of July fireworks to start. We need keep this beautiful part of RI open to the public for future generations to enjoy.

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 family and I would go there every summer as kids. It was always a lot of fun. Now that I am a parent I wish it was still open so my son could have some summer fun at the park and having lasting memories.

Like everybody else who grew up around there, Rocky Point means alot to my family. My Dad's fist job was waiting tables in the Shore Dinner Hall before WWII. And my folks and my Grandma who lived in Apponaug took us kids there just about every summer. It was magic.Its still a magic place to take in the amazing view of the bay. Hope it remains a public space forever. Thanks to all who have worked to make that happen!
