Euclid Beach Park Pier Euclid Creek Reservation, Cleveland June 7, 2019
On Wednesday May 22, 2019 the Cleveland Metroparks had a ribbon cutting ceremony to mark the grand opening of the Euclid Beach Pier.
The new pier is 315-feet long and 16 to 24 feet wide, extending 150 feet over Lake Erie. The newest park amenity was designed to improve accessibility and offers guests clear views of the downtown skyline and historic Euclid Beach shoreline.
The pier features three custom archways that pay homage to the historic park and former Euclid Beach Amusement Park.
Silhouettes by local artist Brinsley Tyrrell are incorporated in the ironwork and feature images of dancers, carousel horses, steamships, the Thriller Car, Rocket Ship Car, Laughing Sal, and more.
The new view can be enjoyed from permanent benches and Adirondack chairs.

"The new Euclid Beach Pier plays a pivotal role in connecting the community with the lakefront," says Cleveland Metroparks CEO Brian M. Zimmerman. "It not only offers a picturesque location for gathering with family and friends but expands opportunities for nature-based education and programming."

And yes, the new pier is built to endure the severe lake conditions Lake Erie can experience through the winter.

In the Euclid Beach Park near the Pier are signs with memories of Euclid Beach.
