Rocky Point Scrapbook

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.

My memories of the wonderful fun I had at Rocky Point will never fade, but it would be really wonderful if we can keep developers from building on it. A park on that stretch of shore would be absolutely AWESOME for people to go and think of what the midway once looked like and to share with others! God, I miss Rocky Point Park!!

Rocky Point is a special place on this State's landscape and in the memories of many Rhode Islanders. I look forward to a continued partnership with Warwick Mayor Avedisian, the city council, federal delegation and other partners in an effort to preserve this land for use and enjoyment by all.

I agree we should have access to Rocky Point and not have it developed on for the rich and famous to enjoy. This is for all Rhode Islanders.

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.

I strongly support public access to Rocky Point, a RI landmark.

I worked hard over the years to secure $2.25-million in federal funding that together with state and local funds made possible the acquisition of 41 acres at Rocky Point. We must continue doing everything we can to preserve this open space and ensure that future generations of Rhode Islanders have public access to the land, shore, and scenic views of Rocky Point.

Rocky Point was my first real job. I was the kid who ran the can smash game. So many awesome memories :)

I used to work there I had the pleasure of making the Chowder there. then I would work the winter at the Windjammer & Palladiun. I knew Conrad Ferla very well & always respected him he was a charecter. making the Chowder for thousands of people every week & sometimes daily was mass production at it's best. I can remember looking at the list of outing's for the week & looking at the numbers & shaking my head & saying how the heck are we going to be able to do this but we did. I could tell you some numbers but you would not believe me. I miss not being able to go there & sit & watch the boats go by. It is a damm shame the shape it is in right now I think somebody should be ASHAMED of themselves THANK YOU
