Rocky Point Scrapbook

I just wanted to add my support. I was at the outing Sunday with another grass roots organization that shares in the same vision: Rocky Point belongs to 'We The People.' I also want to echo the group I was with yesterday, Sunday, that RP needs to re-open as a theme park, with all of it's fanfare and history. Not to mention -- a much needed economic boost to this state and increased tourism. I would like to be in contact so please keep me in mind. Thanks, Matt

I used to work at Rocky Point!

Rocky Point was the most amazing place I visited when I first came to RI in 1978....and it was (and still IS) the only place on earth I ever rode on a ferris wheel, a double ferris wheel, no less! I still remember the view, and being scared to death, and also how delicious the food was at the Shore Dinner Hall. The memories must be preserved, and even more important, the beautiful location needs to be protected and made available to Rhode Islanders forever. To all Rhode Islanders of means, I say simply this: there is no better investment you can make in RI than to donate funds for the purchase of ALL of Rocky Point! What a legacy to leave and be rememberd for! Please help!

I grew up going to this park and would love to bring my kids to this shoreline for them to develop their own memories of Rocky Point!

I live in the community of Warwick Neck, and was employed as a administrative assistant for Rocky Point Amusement Park... I would like to advocate for public ownership as this historical piece of land here in Warwick Neck... Please let me know what I can do to help.

My grandfather went there as early as 1895. I would like to see it preserved as open space with a large shore dinner hall like my parents and I enjoyed the dinners there and the view.

The prospects for the continued preservation of the former Rocky Point Park land are exciting for me as a Warwick native as well as for the people of Rhode Island. I was happy to help obtain federal funding for this project through the years. For too long the Rocky Point property has been closed to the public but with the hard work of federal, state and city leaders this is beginning to change. I look forward to continuing to collaborate with my colleagues and constituents on the work that remains. I am delighted that Rhode Islanders will be able to come to the park and enjoy the beautiful vistas of our most prized natural resource – Narragansett Bay.

I remember going to Rocky Point as a kid when I lived in Rhode Island. It holds lot of fond memories for me.

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.

Jane Higginbotham Jones, Bow, NH

I, the same as many Rhode Islanders spent many amazing and fun-filled days at Rocky Point, and I have some awesome memories I will never forget, I even recently purchased the Rocky Point picture done by Frank Galasso, as well as the Rocky Point ornament for my tree, I would love to see this land open to the public, even if the park buildings are gone it would still be awesome to be able to revisit my old stomping grounds.
