Rocky Point Scrapbook
I agree we should have access to Rocky Point and not have it developed on for the rich and famous to enjoy. This is for all Rhode Islanders.
I have many fond memories of Rocky Point beginning as a little girl in the 60s when my Aunts too me there - they lived in Warwick and I was from North Attleboro then. With my teenage friends we spent some great summer evenings there in the 70s. After I was married we took our own niece in the 80s. I remember the Shore Dinner Hall fondly...My Mom's side of the family is from the area and she dearly loved the shores of Rhode Island. She would be happy to know of your efforts, as am I.

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.
I had a friend who liked to eat. We would get a car load of friends together and go to the Shore Dinner Hall for chowder and clam cakes (the chowder was red, but it was still good. The clam cakes were the best). Anyways, as you may recall it was a first come first serve procedure. You would enter and seat yourself at the first available seat in the row that would at that point be last to be served, As time went on more people would come after you and the eaters who came in before you would soon be full and leave and the servers would get to you. And the patrons would move through the hall like a wave at Point Judith. My friend found great enjoyment in continuing to eat while the patron wave moved away from us. We'd be sitting there five or six rows away from everyone else. He would still be eating and the rest of us would be laughing uncontrollably.
I have many fond memories of summers at Rocky Point. It is such a shame it lays in waste where as no one can use it. It would be nice to someday take my kids there even just to walk the area and do some fishing...
LOTS OF FOND MEMORIES AS A CHILD AND AS AN ADULT. THE JOY OF WATCHING MY CHILDREN THERE. IT IS A SHAME MY GRANDKIDS WILL NEVER KNOW THE FUN AND ADVENTURES OF ROCKY POINT!!
This is a fabulous opportunity to preserve this gorgeous spot for all Rhode Islanders.
Lets all support Rocky Point so that our children may enjoy what is left and what it could be made into.
