Euclid Beach Park Grand Carousel
Colorful, hand-carved wooden horses, once at Euclid Beach Park on Cleveland’s lakefront, now welcome riders once again in the Carousel Pavilion at the Western Reserve Historical Society.
Nearly 45 years after the iconic park’s closure, the restoration of the Grand Carousel is complete. The horses and mechanism have been restored by Carousel Works in Mansfield, Ohio. Scenes depicting Cleveland icons and moments from Euclid Beach Park have been carefully hand-painted by Carousel Works’ skilled artisans and will offer visitors a look back in time to Cleveland’s past.
