Rocky Point Scrapbook
There are very few natural sites that seem far away but are close to the hustle and bustle of the cities. This land is very much worth preserving as open space for the public.
I grew up in Warwick and a staple of my childhood was Rocky Point Park! I can still remember the butterflies I would get in my stomach as we drove under the Rocky Point arch! As a teen I would meet up with or go with my friends to enjoy the fun or just see who else was there. As a young mother I was fortunate to enjoy the park with my son. I was never so sad as the day the park was closed and then subsequently demolished. If we can't bring the amusement park back I would at least love to be able to enjoy the grounds beautiful water views. I FULLY support public access to this property!
This was a place that all ages could enjoy and there is now a huge void and very little left to do in R.I. From the time I was young going on the rides and eating at the chowder hall to attending indoor and outdoor concerts later in life in such a unique,beautiful location for an amusement park.If it wasn't destroyed by the shareholders unnecessary and costly decisions there would definitely still be a huge market for it with no competition in the area as well as more jobs in an area that's lost more jobs than most of the country. It would be nice to have a little walking park there though a big financial backer for a new amusement park would be my preference. Definitely no houses or condo's! Let's all hope it works out!
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!
Several years ago my daughters a family friend and her daughter stood outside Rocky Point to get people to sign to save some of the park I grew up 2 streets away from there and have many memerioes and pictures from there we also got alot of signuaters that was aired on the news So good luck and maybe this time we will win !!!!!!
I have such great memories of my "poppa" taking us there. He enjoyed the clam cakes & chowder so much. I also remember my brother trying to get off the cyclone once it started because he was afraid. I can still remember the smell of the Haunted house.
Rocky Point was a great place to go on a warm summer evening. I remember sitting on the small grass hill near the office, waiting for 4th of July fireworks to start. We need keep this beautiful part of RI open to the public for future generations to enjoy.
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.
As a child, I rode my first roller coaster at Rocky Point with my father. My family went to enjoy the festivities at Rocky Point every summer. Making good, public use of the land would be wonderful. There are beautiful views and fond memories going to waste!
The FLUME rocked! It was the best ride ever! And after the Flume the Music Express to dry off! :) I still miss that place...
