Rocky Point Scrapbook
If you really want to know how I feel about rocky point, go to www.danipontus.com and check out the MY ROCKY POINT video, it was my senior thesis. RISD 2003 FAV. FYI, it came out before the other RP docu. :)
I think this land is a gem in Warwick and we need it for an escape as the airport keeps gettingbigger and eating up our homes. This area would be great for fishing, relaxing, community gatherings. We could re-open the Shore Dinner Hall and bring much needed jobs and revenue to Warwick again as RIAC eats up our tax base, this would help! There is not a RI'er who does not have fond memories of going to Rocky Point for fun, concerts, family days, chowder and clam cakes. This needs to be preserved by State or City and should not allowed to go to some greedy developer! Preserve Preserve Preserve!
Save the park!
Thanks for all your efforts to do something wonderful for the residents of the city of Warwick for now and for generations to come.... Good luck!
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.
Close your eyes, sit quietly on the shores of Warwick Neck, if you listen carefully enough you can probably hear the laughter, smell the chowder and clam cakes or feel the excitement coming from the mid-way or palladium. If you can you're a Rhode Islander, welcome to the club. Saving this incredible site, full of it's memories, should be of the utmost importance to preserve it for Rhode Islander's for many generations to come.
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.
Lets all support Rocky Point so that our children may enjoy what is left and what it could be made into.
My grandparents had a beach house at rocky point beach. I spent the summers of my youth at the beach and park, I always remember the times at the park going on all the rides, eating chowder and cakes. We had the best view of the fireworks from the cottage deck, and we could even hear the concerts too. we didn't need to always go to the park to get the thrill of the rides and food. We could hear the screams ride operators and music from the cottage or even when we were relaxing on the beach. The summers of my youth at rocky point were the best times of my life.
It's a great opportunity for the fishing community to gain some access to the bay especially since we've been losing the access battle for a while. I remember as a young boy fishing off that dock and look forward to that opportunity again.
