Remembering Euclid Beach draws record crowd!

We want to thank the massive crowd that gathered this past Sunday (September 28) to remember the sights and sounds of Euclid Beach Amusement Park.

Those in attendance saw the return of Laughing Sal to the park for the first time since the amusement park closed in 1969. Also, visitors caught the first glimpse of our plans to return the Euclid Beach Carrousel to the existing State Park. (We want to thank City Architecture for donating their services in creating the beautiful rendering.)

Euclid Beach Park Now has received some great publicity for this event. Check out the coverage of the event at:

Four videos of the event have already been uploaded to YouTube!

Remembering Euclid Beach this Sunday!

It's that time of year again -- The Fourth Annual Remembering the Sights & Sounds of Euclid Beach Park event will be this Sunday September 28th 2008 1 pm - 5 pm

We've had 1200 to 1500 of our fellow "Euclid Beach Nuts" come "back to the Beach" each year. 39 years later, it's amazing how magical "Euclid Beach" still is.

And yes, Sunday September 28th 2008 is 39 years to the day that Euclid Beach Park closed forever, on Sunday September 28th 1969. We'll remember . . .

Great fun too, as we'll have both the Thriller Car® & the Rocket Ship Car® giving free rides (under the Arch and around again!)

And Laughing Sal's coming too! (It'll be the first time she's been back to Euclid Beach since the Park closed.)

Northeast Shores is very, very excited and relieved that the ugly, monster multifamily at the corner of East 140th and Othello has been demolished.

We want to thank the City of Cleveland Building and Housing Department from removing this significant blight from the neighborhood. By every measure, this building was one of the five worst structures in the community and we are happy to see it gone.

If you see Councilman Coats, Mayor Jackson, or Building Department Director Rybka, please say "thanks" from everyone in North Shores Collinwood!
