Demolition has begun at the former Rocky Point amusement park to make way for a coastal state park.
Rocky Point Park was a highly popular amusement park on the Narragansett Bay side of Warwick, Rhode Island. It operated from the late 1840s until it closed in 1995. Over the decades, attractions at Rocky Point have come and gone – nature trails, a ferry pier, an observation tower, hotels, clambakes, restaurants, swimming pool, rides, games, and concerts. The following year, the park filed for bankruptcy.
