Rocky Point Scrapbook
What great news!!! I wish you GREAT success!!! If you need volunteers, I would be happy to lend some time.
I <3 Rocky Point.
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.
I worked there for about 5 years in the food department managing some of the food stands. This place has great memories.
The FLUME rocked! It was the best ride ever! And after the Flume the Music Express to dry off! :) I still miss that place...
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 would like to thank the folks who have put their efforts into this project. I truly believe this will greatly affect the future generations of the state.
I worked hard over the years to secure $2.25-million in federal funding that together with state and local funds made possible the acquisition of 41 acres at Rocky Point. We must continue doing everything we can to preserve this open space and ensure that future generations of Rhode Islanders have public access to the land, shore, and scenic views of Rocky Point.
This was a place that all ages could enjoy and there is now a huge void and very little left to do in R.I. From the time I was young going on the rides and eating at the chowder hall to attending indoor and outdoor concerts later in life in such a unique,beautiful location for an amusement park.If it wasn't destroyed by the shareholders unnecessary and costly decisions there would definitely still be a huge market for it with no competition in the area as well as more jobs in an area that's lost more jobs than most of the country. It would be nice to have a little walking park there though a big financial backer for a new amusement park would be my preference. Definitely no houses or condo's! Let's all hope it works out!
