Rocky Point Scrapbook
It's a great opportunity for the fishing community to gain some access to the bay especially since we've been losing the access battle for a while. I remember as a young boy fishing off that dock and look forward to that opportunity again.
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.
Please find a way to keep this location that so many have enjoyed available to be enjoyed by generations to come!!!
Bring it back !!!!!!!
A former Rhode Islander, I remember visiting Rocky Point Park as a teen. One vivid memory was when my grandfather took myself and my cousins to the amusement park and he and I were the only ones brave enough to ride ride the white loopdy-loop roller coaster! I will never forget that day!
Rocky Point was the most amazing place I visited when I first came to RI in 1978....and it was (and still IS) the only place on earth I ever rode on a ferris wheel, a double ferris wheel, no less! I still remember the view, and being scared to death, and also how delicious the food was at the Shore Dinner Hall. The memories must be preserved, and even more important, the beautiful location needs to be protected and made available to Rhode Islanders forever. To all Rhode Islanders of means, I say simply this: there is no better investment you can make in RI than to donate funds for the purchase of ALL of Rocky Point! What a legacy to leave and be rememberd for! Please help!
I grew up in the Rocky Point area and spent many wonderful days there. I also worked at the Shore Dinner Hall - great memories of the park and the salt water pool.
I met my fiancee there when we both worked at the park.
Rocky Point is truly the jewel in the center of Narragansett Bay.
I think this land is a gem in Warwick and we need it for an escape as the airport keeps gettingbigger and eating up our homes. This area would be great for fishing, relaxing, community gatherings. We could re-open the Shore Dinner Hall and bring much needed jobs and revenue to Warwick again as RIAC eats up our tax base, this would help! There is not a RI'er who does not have fond memories of going to Rocky Point for fun, concerts, family days, chowder and clam cakes. This needs to be preserved by State or City and should not allowed to go to some greedy developer! Preserve Preserve Preserve!
