Planning for future generations


While today’s children never experienced Rocky Point Amusement Park as many know it, how the property is developed will determine how it is used and remembered for generations to come. With that thought in mind, Senator Michael McCaffrey is the sponsor of a $5,000 legislative grant awarded recently to the Rocky Point Foundation, the non-profit that lobbied for the inclusion of $10 million in a bond issue approved by voters in 2010 for the purchase of the remaining 80-plus park acres. With completion of that purchase projected for early next year, the foundation would use the funds to conduct public sessions soliciting ideas on creating a “sustainable” Rocky Point Park for the future. Pictured with McCaffrey at left is George Shuster of the foundation and their daughters, Brenna McCaffrey and Georgia and Greta Shuster. (Warwick Beacon photo)
