Upon turning on to Rocky Point Avenue, The front gates were the iconic entryway to Park. All who remember the trip to Rocky Point will recall the building enthusiasm and anticipation while heading towards the park's entrance.
The gates were believed to be built sometime in the 1950's and were demolished when Condo Developers were looking to purchase the land. Some of the letters and concrete bricks were salvaged by collectors.
Images have recently surfaced of an earlier main gate, rumored to have been destroyed in the 1954 Hurricane.
The People of Rhode Island have asked that a new gate be built to memorialize the park.
