Come join us, and join kite fliers all over world flying kites for peace. Savin Rock is the site of the old amusement park next to the big rock. This is New England, and that means you have to know where it is to be able to find out how to get to it. There are directions to Savin Rock on this Blog. If you use Mapquest or Google Maps, you want the parking lot at Bradley Point Beach, in Bradley Point Park. When I made Savin Rock a Waypoint in my Garmin Nuvi, it showed: N 41º15'16.1" W072º57'27.4".
