Happy third anniversary, Rocky Point State Park

Event2   Well, I’m three days late on the anniversary wishes.  But what’s a few days for a park that started in 1847?  So about three years ago today, Rocky Point State Park opened to the public.  Like today, October 25, 2014 was a gorgeous Fall day.  Rather than rehash it all, I’ll share some photos of the event which was enjoyed by thousands.

Leading up to the big event, Beacon Publications, publisher of the Warwick Beacon, devoted its August Prime Time magazine to the park.   https://issuu.com/beaconcommunications/docs/primetime_august_2014

The Rocky Point Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit advocacy organization, was established in 2009 to help preserve and protect the natural and historic heritage and environment of the land formerly occupied by the Rocky Point Amusement Park, was a key player in Rocky Point State Park becoming a reality.  Check out the Foundation’s website to find out what they did and what they are still doing.  They also provide an informative timeline here: https://rockypointfoundation.org/saga

So here we are, more than three years later!

In future blog items, I’ll discuss the events and enhancements that have taken place in the park over the years.  In the meantime, here’s what’s happened so far this year in my “review” video:

As mentioned, today was an awesome one weather-wise at Rocky Point State Park.  And to celebrate its anniversary, I shot this video this morning, highlighting its natural beauty and its patrons and their pets enjoying it.

Happy (belated) anniversary, Rocky Point State Park!
