A Quick History….
On June 22, 1895, John Irwin, Hylas B. Gladwish, Albert E. Thompson, John Flynn, and Jerome B. Burrows opened Euclid Beach Park. In 1901, Dudley S. Humphrey assumed ownership of the park, operating it until it closed on September 28, 1969. Under the Humphrey family’s ownership, Euclid Beach Park thrived with the installation of the Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel, the Flying Turns ride, the famous Euclid Beach Bath House, and so much more. Today, the iconic Euclid Beach Park archway and the remnants of a swimming pool are all that remain on the site.
