Annual Euclid Beach Park Day to Take Place on July 21


Locals still fondly remember Euclid Beach Park, one of the most prominent amusement parks in Cleveland. Though the place closed in 1969, its memories remain. Four years ago, the Western Reserve Historical Society (WRHS), Cleveland Carousel Society and Euclid Beach Park Now partnered to restore the 1910 Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel to operating condition.

Four years ago, WRHS also launched Euclid Beach Park Day to commemorate the amusement park. This year's event takes place on July 21. There will be unlimited rides on the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel, lawn games, food trucks and pony rides. In addition, Lolly the Trolly will offer special Euclid Beach Park tours featuring storytelling and narration.

“Our annual Euclid Beach Park Festival at the Cleveland History Center brings family, community, and history together for a day full of food, laughter, and games, with generations of Greater Clevelanders creating new memories with the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel at the center of the fun. The Carousel is the ultimate interactive exhibit and best place in Cleveland – in our opinion – to capture a photograph,” says WRHS President & CEO Kelly Falcone-Hall in a press release announcing the event.

The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Cleveland History Center. Check the website for ticket prices and more details.
