Rocky Point Scrapbook
Thanks for all you are doing. I definitely support you in all your efforts and would love to have access to Rocky Point again.
My great uncles Paul and Alfred Castiglioni leased Rocky Point from the Harrington Family from 1919-1938 and ran it as the Rocky Point Amusement Company. They were unable to resume operation after the hurricane. It would be my pleasure to see it again open to the public for all to enjoy.
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.
Please save this wonderful place.
Rocky Point was my first real job. I was the kid who ran the can smash game. So many awesome memories :)
My family and I would go there every summer as kids. It was always a lot of fun. Now that I am a parent I wish it was still open so my son could have some summer fun at the park and having lasting memories.
Too much of our beautiful Rhode Island coastline has been lost to the bulldozer, and to private concerns. Once lost, it will be gone forever......Rocky Point, with all of it's natural beauty and rarity, needs and deserves to be preserved for all to enjoy, now and for generations to come. The exchange of stories and memories of Rocky Point Park will fade in time, but if preserved it will be coveted for it's natural beauty and uniqueness, with new and different memories to share.
Please keep Rocky Point open! I haven't been able to take my kids there due to it's closure. Please do not rob me of the experience of doing what my parents and their parents before then have been able to do, share a beautiful area with their children!
We can all save this beautiful piece of property from commercial development.
We must save this cultural treasure for future generations. It has so much rich history and should always be preserved for past , present , and future Rhode Islanders.
