Rocky Point Scrapbook
I remember Rocky point when i was 10. I am know 25 and am so glad i got to go. I remember i lived in West Warwick at the time and it seemed to take forever to get there. Just seeing the sign as we drove up excitement just took over!!!!
Growing up in Providence in the 50's, I have fond memories of Rocky Point. My parents would take us for Chowder and Clam Cakes at the Shore Dinner Hall and we would love going on the rides. When my husband and I were dating it was one of our favorite places to go just to walk around and enjoy the atmosphere. After we were married, we moved to Warwick ( a couple of miles from the park) where our children grew up spending a lot of time at Rocky Point going on the rides or swiming in the pool. One of our daughters got her first job selling clam cakes and chowder at the walk up window and my husband and son spent many days fishing off the dock. I support an open and accessible Rocky Point. Good Luck!
I really do hope that no one comes in at the last moment and scarfs up the land for apartments. I'd just cry if that happened.
Supports this cause.
I remember Rocky Point as a boy and my last visits were in 1970 at age ten and in 1972. I remember riding that Rocky Point Express during my last visit with my family and this spanish woman with her child were on this train sitting behind us and she thought some how that train was going up that water flume and come down it as the train passed near the flume and my grandmother told her that it was going to be ok and that the train was not going to go down that flume. That sky liner really gave nice views of the Bay from when you reached the top of that hill and came back down. and acourse the house of Horrors was another favorite of mine as a kid back then. This is a great worth while project and to preserve a little memory for us all of that beautiful view. Best Wishes and keep me posted with the latest developments.
I met my fiancee there when we both worked at the park.
I have many fond memories of Rocky Point beginning as a little girl in the 60s when my Aunts too me there - they lived in Warwick and I was from North Attleboro then. With my teenage friends we spent some great summer evenings there in the 70s. After I was married we took our own niece in the 80s. I remember the Shore Dinner Hall fondly...My Mom's side of the family is from the area and she dearly loved the shores of Rhode Island. She would be happy to know of your efforts, as am I.
Thank you to all of you that are working so hard to open this land for all of us.
I grew up going to this park and would love to bring my kids to this shoreline for them to develop their own memories of Rocky Point!
