Rocky Point Scrapbook

Rocky Point is a major icon in RI history. It deserves to be a heritage site.

Thank you to all of you that are working so hard to open this land for all of us.

A former Rhode Islander, I remember visiting Rocky Point Park as a teen. One vivid memory was when my grandfather took myself and my cousins to the amusement park and he and I were the only ones brave enough to ride ride the white loopdy-loop roller coaster! I will never forget that day!

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 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.

I can't think of a better way than to retain this land and protect it from development for future generations. This parcel is a state treasure -- tourism and the natural beauty of Rhode Island is something that people will never tire of, and will keep people visiting the state for years to come.

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.

Rocky Point was a huge part of my childhood. It makes me sad to know that my son won't be able to experience what I have.
