Euclid Beach Park holds special memories for Clevelanders of all ages. Just what makes this park so very memorable? Join John Frato, Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel Training & Volunteer Coordinator, for this month’s Speaking of Cleveland Talk & Tour to find out!
First, learn about the story of Euclid Beach Park as we present our lecture, The Story of Euclid Beach Park. This presentation will cover the park’s history, from its beginnings in 1895 through its heyday and into its final days in 1969. Then, explore the iconic Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel like never before in a behind-the-scenes tour of the carousel at the Cleveland History Center. Get up-close with the colorful, hand-carved wooden horses and hand-painted scenes on the carousel’s exterior and take a peek into its inner workings while learning the story of its restoration.
This tour is available virtually through Zoom AND in-person at the Cleveland History Center. Spaces for the in-person event are limited, so reserve your spot today!
