No Swimming at Euclid Beach.....For Now

Cleveland Metroparks has been working diligently to try to identify a designated swim location for the community at Euclid Beach. In our efforts to identify the designated swim area, we encountered numerous submerged obstacles that make swimming at Euclid Beach hazardous. Euclid Beach will be closed for swimming for the time being.  The beach itself will be open and we encourage visitors to enjoy the beach area.

We are in the process of obtaining necessary permits from the Army Corps of Engineers  to take certain actions locate and/or create a suitable swim area. However, this process takes time. 

We know people will be disappointed to hear this news, but the safety of our visitors and our employees is our top priority.

We will continue to keep the community informed of any progress we make towards swimming at Euclid Beach, but at this time there will be no swimming at Euclid Beach.  We encourage the community to enjoy the park and beach area, but we will enforce a no swimming policy. 

The City of Cleveland offers free swimming lessons this June through August at the following locations. Visit for more information.
