A Rocky Point Of View

Once the home to the Flume, the Corkscrew, the Cyclone, the Freefall and an assortment of other thrilling attractions, Warwick, Rhode Island’s Rocky Point State Park is now a serene 120 acres of spectacular coastal retreat. Seems everywhere you point a camera or a phone, you’ll capture an awesome photo.   You won’t catch a splashdown on the Flume or a Cyclone car cresting the lift hill, but you’re nearly certain to snag a magical image or two.  Here are some examples of the wonders of Rocky Point State Park as documented by members of the Rocky Point Park Remembered! Facebook group.

If you’re an early riser, you can treat yourself to a glorious sunrise like theabove cover photo captured by Tim Forsberg.  Here are some other sunrise photos by Tim and others.

The Arch, which came to Rocky Point in 1966 from the 1964/65 New York Words Fair is another inspiring photo op.

Even the reflection of the Arch can make a cool photo…in the winter!

As the sun sets at Rocky Point State Park, it’s time to head to the parking lot.  But not before we snap a few more photos.
