Rocky Point Scrapbook

If you really want to know how I feel about rocky point, go to www.danipontus.com and check out the MY ROCKY POINT video, it was my senior thesis. RISD 2003 FAV. FYI, it came out before the other RP docu. :)

I remember going to Rocky Point as a child and eating clam cakes and chowder at the dinner hall. I remember going there with my friends and riding the corkscrew. I want to be able to take my kids thru there so they can see what a great location it was.

I would need a full page to describe my days at Rocky Point. My parents would take out the boat and go to the park, have chowda and clam cakes. We would go the Midway for rides, Tango (my mother’s favorite) and stay late for special entertainment or fireworks. You just could not beat Rocky Point for family fun. We need this area if not for the rides, but for the heritage my parents gave to us kids when we were young. Also my husband and I would go for cakes and sit by the water and later would fish from the rocks. What a day and a tradition was created. Our conversation would always be about what we did, the rides we went on and the fun at the Windjammer for local bands. Please help us to give this tradition to our children to pass on the stories and fun at Rocky Point. I am in favor of bringing back the waterfront again to the people of RI.

The park was a inexpensive way to enjoy summer nights with friends and family.

I moved to RI when I was a teen from Germany. I remember going to Rocky Point many times with my friends and having a great time.

I grew up in Warwick Neck and have many fond memories of Rocky Point. I spent one summer working at Rocky Point as well as many summers enjoying the rides, pool, and clamcakes. I fully support public access to and use of the entire Rocky Point property.

I Worked at Rocky Point in the mid 80's as a ride operator for 4 years.My last year there was 1986.i ran two of the rides..the Rock & Roll plus the House of Horrors. im hoping that if you get to reopen the park once more,it would be nice to see those rides put back in. as i don't have an e-mail address..could you send info on what..if any rides you plan on putting back into the park? i would come all the way from wisconsin to see the grand re-opening. i was also promoted to breakman in my last year there.i would go around the park and give all the other ride operators thire breaks while i ran the rides. best wishes from a former Rocky Point Ride Operator!!!!!!!

Would love to see Rocky Point restored and given back to the people of RI.

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.

My grandparents had a beach house at rocky point beach. I spent the summers of my youth at the beach and park, I always remember the times at the park going on all the rides, eating chowder and cakes. We had the best view of the fireworks from the cottage deck, and we could even hear the concerts too. we didn't need to always go to the park to get the thrill of the rides and food. We could hear the screams ride operators and music from the cottage or even when we were relaxing on the beach. The summers of my youth at rocky point were the best times of my life.
