Rocky Point Scrapbook
I enjoyed every time I went to Rocky Point as a kid and a teen. It was sad to see it close. As a parent, I wish I could take my kids there and build memories for them like I had the opportunity to make. Bring back Rocky Point!!
This was the place of my first roller coaster, my first meal of chowder & clam cakes, my first true love and my first job. I would love to save whatever we can.
My grandparents had a beach house at rocky point beach. I spent the summers of my youth at the beach and park, I always remember the times at the park going on all the rides, eating chowder and cakes. We had the best view of the fireworks from the cottage deck, and we could even hear the concerts too. we didn't need to always go to the park to get the thrill of the rides and food. We could hear the screams ride operators and music from the cottage or even when we were relaxing on the beach. The summers of my youth at rocky point were the best times of my life.
The FLUME rocked! It was the best ride ever! And after the Flume the Music Express to dry off! :) I still miss that place...
We walked thru Rocky point when it was recently reopened to the public what a waste of a beautiful area...we all miss rocky point!
I am longing to walk my dog in the park that I hope will be accessible in the near future. We have been denied access for far too long to the beautiful shore line. I worked at the Windjammer and the Palladium for 5 years in the late 70's and early 80's when the park was bustling and I always took a moment on the way into work to look at the water. I miss that view. I will send a financial contribution in the next few weeks. Gook Luck on your quest.
Thanks for all you are doing. I definitely support you in all your efforts and would love to have access to Rocky Point again.
Rocky Point has been a long standing tradition in my family since my great grandfather came to RI, the mess hall, the fireworks, concerts and every little detail will forever be in my heart and memories. Please keep this land for all of its past and future treasures. Thank you.
The good old days at Rocky Point - etched in your head forever. Let's not forget that salt-water pool!
Whenever I give presentations on Rhode Island and mention Rocky Point, there is an audible 'breath' taken by the audience that makes us all alike for a moment in our remembrance of a truly enjoyable, memorable, and superior part of Rhode Island. Making the park open for the public to use will keep this monumental park's memory alive, but it also serves to show off the beauty of Rhode Island's coastline and the determined consciousness and caring of Rhode Island citizens.
