Euclid Beach Park was an amusement park previously located in Cleveland, Ohio, USA. The park first opened in 1895 and closed on September 28, 1969. Part of its property is now home to a Cleveland Metropark with some small remnants of the amusement park.
Euclid Beach Park was established by the Euclid Beach Park Co., consisting of Cleveland, Ohio businessmen, in the late 1800s. The business venture was situated on Lake Erie and hoped to duplicate the success of Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York, USA. Visitors to the park could originally access it by ferry (affectionally referred to as Euclid Beach "TUBS") or by trolley. Original attractions included a pier into Lake Erie, a dance pavilion, and musical and variety performances.
The park was expanded with its first rides for the 1896 season. This included the Switchback Railway, Pleasure Wheel, and Merry-Go-Round.
Park president Dudley Humphrey announced plans on June 7, 1968 to close the park at the end of the 1969 season. After Euclid Beach Park closed, many of its rides were relocated to Shady Lake in Streetsboro, Ohio, USA.
