Rocky Point Scrapbook
I lived in warwick as a child and remember the fun at Rocky Point and the great fishing off the rocks.
I moved to RI when I was a teen from Germany. I remember going to Rocky Point many times with my friends and having a great time.
Rocky Point has a long and unique history here in Rhode Island. For over a century, it was a place where people gathered to enjoy nature's beauty and the company of family and friends. Its sweeping views of Narragansett Bay make Rocky Point one of the jewels of the Ocean State. We are delighted to have secured 41 acres and a full mile of unobstructed coastline for current and future generations of Rhode Islanders. I am committed to preserving Rocky Point for its environmental value, for its historical significance and for the many people of this state who hold Rocky Point dear in their hearts. I am now working diligently with the Rocky Point Foundation, the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management and others to acquire additional land to make this the Colt State Park of the West Bay.
I have such great memories of my "poppa" taking us there. He enjoyed the clam cakes & chowder so much. I also remember my brother trying to get off the cyclone once it started because he was afraid. I can still remember the smell of the Haunted house.
I lived on the corner of RiverVue and Tidewater and I used to just open my bedroom window to see fireworks! Friends and I walked the beach right up to the park when it was low tide and we have many family films of swimming pool days! The traffic to the park drove by our house...if they knew the "shortcut" so we always knew when something great was going on and we joined in. There are SO many memories at Rocky Point for SO many people...it was a true Wonderland for us. I'd love nothing more than to see it preserved in some wondrous way!
In my teen years...I spent a lot of time at Rocky Point. We loved the place....I will send a donation as soon as possible. I will be visiting my sister soon in RI and would like to visit Rocky Point while I'm there.
Rocky Point is a major icon in RI history. It deserves to be a heritage site.
The FLUME rocked! It was the best ride ever! And after the Flume the Music Express to dry off! :) I still miss that place...
Rocky Point is a treasure and should be preserved as a beautiful and natural sanctuary to be enjoyed by people who appreciate it.
I met my fiancee there when we both worked at the park.
