Rocky Point Scrapbook
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!
Would love to have memories with my kids there as it was such a great place when i was a kid.
I grew up going to Rocky Point every year as a child and have amazing memories even as an adult! I would love if my children could have the same opportunity to make their memories at Rocky Point!!
Rocky Point was an institution in Rhode Island, and the source of many fond memories for me. It was such a shame that a great landmark had to fall at the hands of mismanagement of funding. It would be great to see the area reopened, and I definitely admire and support what your organization is doing.
The ONLY right thing to do with this property is public ownership. Anything else is unthinkable.
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.
A gang of us boys from Edgewood would pile into one buddy's car & drive the length of Warwick Ave to work the rides each day in the summer. My best friend & I always got to run the best ride, the skyliner. Friday night was always hopping for us young teenagers. The skyliner was the lovers' ride. Young couples would hold hands & maybe even sneak a kiss if you were lucky. Those were fun times filled with anticipation & excitement over who we were seeing or who we might meet. Then we'd be busy working long days & nights for the remainder of the week with the crowds of families that would come.
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.
It belongs to the people of RI and I support that this land be kept pristine.
I have many fond memories of Rocky Point during my childhood and teen years. These memories will always be a cherished part of my life.
