Rocky Point State Park

(4 of 396)


Located in Warwick, RI (4 miles from Barrington)

Opened for the first time in nearly twenty years in 2014, Rocky Point State Park serves as a memory for many Rhode Islanders of generation's past. Over the 150+ years of the property's existence, it has served as a location for nature trails, a ferry pier, an observation tower, hotels, clambakes, restaurants, swimming pool, rides, games, and concerts – but the attraction of 120 acres of land for public use within 10 miles of downtown Providence has been a consistent draw since 1850.
A the state's newest coastal state park, visitors can enjoy the property they once made so many memories at, while the younger generations of park-goers can make new ones.
