Rocky Point Scrapbook
I <3 Rocky Point.
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 miss RP more then words can say. If I had the money I would buy it all and reopen the park as it was years ago.
So many memories with family and friends at Rocky Point. I would LOVE to relive those memories and someday be able to return to the park grounds.
Growing up, in our family Spring began on Easter with our annual family trip to Rocky Point. We didn't miss a year for as long as I can remember.
I've never even really been to Rocky Point. I was four when it closed, but recently one of my friends from Warwick drove me to the place where it used to be. There is this presence about the land...a history; a legacy. Stories from this place will be passed down for generations and that is something that should be preserved. Although I have never had the personal opportunity to experience Rocky Point, I wish that I had. Because as a Rhode Islander, I feel that it is a part of my personal history.
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.
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.
This was the place of my first roller coaster, my first meal of chowder & clam cakes, my first true love and my first job. I would love to save whatever we can.
