Rocky Point Scrapbook
Rocky Point has been a long standing tradition in my family since my great grandfather came to RI, the mess hall, the fireworks, concerts and every little detail will forever be in my heart and memories. Please keep this land for all of its past and future treasures. Thank you.
Lived in Warwick most of my life and enjoyed Rocky Point and I would not like to see it developed.
I met my fiancee there when we both worked at the park.
My first trip to Rocky Point as a child was in 1961 with my family. Twenty years later I brought my own children. Sometimes we'd just sit on the shore and share a bag or 2 of the famous "Rocky Point Clam Cakes" and have some very interesting conversations. It's amazing what children will talk about when in a relaxed setting like that! My prayers..let this peaceful place continue so I can share it with my grandchildren!
I had a friend who liked to eat. We would get a car load of friends together and go to the Shore Dinner Hall for chowder and clam cakes (the chowder was red, but it was still good. The clam cakes were the best). Anyways, as you may recall it was a first come first serve procedure. You would enter and seat yourself at the first available seat in the row that would at that point be last to be served, As time went on more people would come after you and the eaters who came in before you would soon be full and leave and the servers would get to you. And the patrons would move through the hall like a wave at Point Judith. My friend found great enjoyment in continuing to eat while the patron wave moved away from us. We'd be sitting there five or six rows away from everyone else. He would still be eating and the rest of us would be laughing uncontrollably.
I first came to RI in 1967 when I was in the Seabees at Quonset. I remember going to Rocky Point when I was dating my wife. We went on a few of the rides and had diner at the Shore Dining Hall.
I grew up in West Warwick and always went to Rocky Point as a kid. It's a shame it can't be reopened for the public to enjoy!!!!
Beautiful spot that should be open to all. Spent a great deal of time there when I was young. Very sad to see it in the shape it is in today. So glad to see John Howell and friends stepping up to the plate to preserve this as open space for the future.
I helped sign up Friends of Rocky Point at the Flower Show.
