Rocky Point State Park

Rocky Point State Park serves as a memory for many Rhode Islanders of generations 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, a 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.

Iconic arch at Rocky Point State Park

Rocky Point State Park reopened to the public in 2014 as 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. If you are planning to visit the Rocky Point property, please keep in mind that this is now a passive-use park and certain guidelines exist for its preservation. Check out the Arch from the 1964 World’s Fair in Queens, NY, that was relocated to Rocky Point. The State of Rhode Island and the City of Warwick ask that you take only pictures and leave only footprints.
