Rocky Point Scrapbook

I can remember going to Rocky Point when i was little. My parents would bring my brother and me to the park during the summers. I used to love looking out at the water, riding the Corkscrew and eating at the Dinner Hall. I would love to be able to go in and walk around the old park and look at the water again. It's a big part of the area's history and is important to a lot of people. To put condos or anything else on it would be a shame and a waste. This land should be preserved for future generations to enjoy. The stories that get passed down from generation to generation would be even better if they were told on the actual grounds where they happened. I really hope that in the future i will be able to walk there with my children and tell them about what it used to be like.

My parents and sister, Ernest, Alice and Constance Betters. When dad was home on leave from the Canadian Air Force in the 1940's. I hope these photos will find a spot in the Rocky Point scrapbook. I remember the drive to Rocky Point from Pawtucket and enjoying the salt water swimming pool. Then onto the midway collecting change falling from the pockets of riders on spinning rides. I don't remember the ride name, but it stood in the center of the midway nearest to the bay.

I live in the community of Warwick Neck, and was employed as a administrative assistant for Rocky Point Amusement Park... I would like to advocate for public ownership as this historical piece of land here in Warwick Neck... Please let me know what I can do to help.

I'm glad to be a Friend of Rocky Point. It's a beautiful place that should be available to everyone. I have memories of fun visits to the Park when I was a kid growing up in Warwick. I also remember many hours waitressing at the Shore Dinner Hall. Thank you for organizing this effort to save Rocky Point.

Rocky Point is truly the jewel in the center of Narragansett Bay.

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.
