Rocky Point Scrapbook
Rocky Point was a great place to go on a warm summer evening. I remember sitting on the small grass hill near the office, waiting for 4th of July fireworks to start. We need keep this beautiful part of RI open to the public for future generations to enjoy.
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!
I remember going to Rocky Point Amusment Park and viewing the great view over the bay. This is one of many great childhood memories.
I used to bring my kids when they were little to Rocky Point. They loved the rides (and so did I) but I loved walking to a large rock to appreciate the ocean. Let's save this beautiful area for all.
I remember going to Rocky Point in the summer when I was a kid! I was so disappointed when the park closed! Since that time I've always hoped that SOMEDAY the Rocky Point I loved would come back. Unfortunately, I now realize that was a exactly what I thought, a dream! I would love to see something good happen with the property for the City of Warwick Residents so we can still enjoy the wonderful Rocky Point which we all love!
I envision public access for kayaking, hiking trails, community gardens, a Farmer's Market & wind turbines whirring overhead. Sheep grazing in pastures w/ their wool processed locally for Rocky Point Blankets & Sweaters. The turbines would provide enough power for the site with the eccess energy sold to 'The Grid' & the proceeds used to bolster Warwick's bottom line.
Several years ago my daughters a family friend and her daughter stood outside Rocky Point to get people to sign to save some of the park I grew up 2 streets away from there and have many memerioes and pictures from there we also got alot of signuaters that was aired on the news So good luck and maybe this time we will win !!!!!!
Rocky Point is a major icon in RI history. It deserves to be a heritage site.
So many memories with family and friends at Rocky Point. I would LOVE to relive those memories and someday be able to return to the park grounds.
