Rocky Point Scrapbook
Rocky Point offers access to the Bay, links to our past, and a once in a lifetime opportunity to restore and open one of the most beautiful and dramatic stretches of Rhode Island's coastline for the enjoyment of future generations. Save The Bay will work side by side with the Rocky Point Foundation and others in their efforts.
Alway's enjoyed Rocky Point as a Kid! Will alway's remember Rocky Point as being the place for us to be taken for field trips & outings!
Rocky Point is the source of many great childhood memories with my mom and dad - sitting on the shore eating clamcakes on Sunday afternoon was always something I looked forward to. Many great times were had in the park itself!! Come on RI - let's get together and save this place, the children of today need a fun place to make their own memories locally.
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!!
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!
Rocky Point is a place that should be preserved and open to public use once again. Too much of the coastline has been privatized and a place like Rocky Point has many more memories to create.
Hi my name is eric pagano and I wanted to say Even though it was sad to see rocky point park in the condition that it is in I enjoyed the chance to see the historic land mark. I would love to see the park rebuilt with rides and attractions and to see the tax payees money go to good of the people and the future of our state and children. I no the cost of making this happen could be out reach but consider the revenue it would bring to the state and what it could do for businesses. I would to see come back for kids and families, there is not a lot to do in rhode island for kids.
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!
My first recollection of Rocky Point was back in the '50's.' My Mother use to tell me about having wonderful picnics down on the Rhode Island Shore with my Grand Mother and Grand Father. We were from Boston (Hyde Park). Back in the 1920's it was a five hour ride by car to Rocky Point. My Mother had one sibling (Aunt Dot) who also loved going down to the Rhode Island Shore on a hot summer day. She would tell me that they left in the dark and came home in the dark. Yes, it was a long day, but both my mother and her sister waited with anticipation for a fun day filled with food, drink, swimming, amusements and fresh salt air. During the 1960's (65-68) I was stioned at Quonset Point Naval Air Station. I married a women from Warwick, lived in Warwick, and had two son's. My boys both worked at Rocky Point during the '80's' on their summer vacation. This was a great learning experience for the kids and I was sadened when the Park closed. When my Grandmother was not feeling well and fading in 1968 My Mother and my Aunt Dot asked her if there was any place she would like to visit. Yes! She replied 'Rocky Point!'
