Remembering the Sights & Sounds of Euclid Beach Park 13th Annual

The Golden Age of the American amusement park lasted from the late 1890’s to the late 1920’s. At that time America was becoming more industrial, and individuals had more disposable income and time for entertainment. Hundreds of amusement parks opened in and around most major cities to offer one form of entertainment. Cleveland was no exception as many amusement parks opened. Better known were: Luna Park, White City, Puritas Springs, Chippewa Lake Park, Geauga Lake Park. Lesser known or remembered parks include; Scenic Park, Lincoln Park, Washington Park, Forest City Park, Willoughbeach Park, Gordon Gardens, Orchard Lake Park, Brady Lake, and Mentor Beach Park.  Missing from both lists is arguably Cleveland’s most beloved amusement park, Euclid Beach Park which operated from 1895 to 1969. Individuals growing up in an around Cleveland and who had the opportunity to visit the park on the shores of Lake Erie, have fond and sentimental memories of the amusement park. Just mentioning Euclid Beach Park to someone who remembers the park will prompt a smile and story. Luckly large pieces of Euclid Beach Park have survived these 48 years since the park’s final season. Euclid Beach Park’s “Grand Carousel” has operated in the Cleveland History Center of the Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland’s University Circle since the grand opening in 2014. Not many carousels have survived since the Golden Age of the amusment park. The Euclid Beach Park carousel operated at an amusement park in Old Orchard Beach after the park closed. Besides surviving the carousel returned to Cleveland something a very few carousels have done, returning to the city where it first operated. Another amazing event, the band organ that was with the carousel for 59 years at Euclid Beach Park is again with the ride after it made its own journeys.  Two different owners have the three rocket ships from the parks Rocket Ship circle swing ride both have motorized them and can be seen during Cleveland’s warmer months traveling area roadways. One rocket ship car owner also acquired a roller coaster car from the park’s Thriller coaster and has it mounted to the back of a 1930’s pickup truck thus street legal.
