Rocky Point Scrapbook
Walking trails, a view of the bay... a gift to RI, the people, the children of the future.
Please find a way to keep this location that so many have enjoyed available to be enjoyed by generations to come!!!
I am longing to walk my dog in the park that I hope will be accessible in the near future. We have been denied access for far too long to the beautiful shore line. I worked at the Windjammer and the Palladium for 5 years in the late 70's and early 80's when the park was bustling and I always took a moment on the way into work to look at the water. I miss that view. I will send a financial contribution in the next few weeks. Gook Luck on your quest.
That park should belong to the Rhode Islanders to enjoy.
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.
I have fond memories of my friends and I riding our bikes to the Warwick Neck General Store. Buying a snack or two then riding to Rocky Point, sitting on the rocks and eating our snacks. Let's make this land public again, so that one day my children can do the same.
The high point of my children’s visits to their grandparents in RI was a trip to Rocky Point. Now I hope my grandchildren will at least be able walk there and climb the rocks.
Some of my fondest childhood,teenage and family memories are of Rocky Point, as a child the merry go round and watching the cotton candy spin into a delicacy just for me. Playing pitching pennies for goldfish and the greyhound races of which I (at 62) still display a prize I won when I was 6). Skee ball with my father and standing next to 'Are you this tall' to see if I could go on certain rides. As a teenager riding the Catapillar and when the top when up giving my boyfriend a kiss. The House of horrors. Prom at the Palladium. Swimming in the salt water pool. Watching the boys at the batting cages. As and adult... Chowder and clamcakes at the Shore Dinner Hall, watching my children enjoy the rides ( I think their favorite was 'the flume') outings with family and friends, Fireworks on the 4th of July. These are only some of my fondest memories. Just hearing the words Rocky Point makes me smile.
