What's New? Edgewater Park Beach House
Food, Drink, and Primo Views
Edgewater Park has been working on its beach body this winter and it’s finally ready to unveil its amazing results. As of June 2, the park’s new Beach House is open for business (or pleasure).
The newest addition is a continuation of the Cleveland Metroparks’ plan to clean up Edgewater Park. The 12,000-square foot, two-story Beach House provides updated amenities for visitors and replaces the previously existing bathrooms and concession stand from the mid-1980s.
The Beach House’s first level includes new bathrooms, changing areas and The Centennial Plaza, which will be used as a multi-functional space for special events and live music. A made-to-order concession stand, also on the first level, will offer visitors a variety of tasty options.
Turkey reubens, chicken clubs, bratwurst burgers, quesadillas and custom burgers and black bean burgers top the list of beachin' food. Faves like nachos and hot dogs will be available too. And don't worry, you'll still be able to get Honey Hut ice cream to help beat the heat after a day at the beach.
You can take in the sweeping views of Lake Erie and the Downtown skyline from the awesome pavilion on the Beach House’s second level. With a full-service bar, dual-sided outdoor fireplace and lounge seating, the second level of the Edgewater Park Beach House will quickly become your go-to summer hangout spot. It also offers an elevated walkway that connects to the W. 76 St. pedestrian tunnel to allow easy access to the Beach House and beach.
“We welcome the public to come take advantage of the place they’ve watched be built over the past eight months,” says Jacqueline Gerling, the director of communications for the Cleveland Metroparks. “We want the public to make it their own.”
The Beach House’s opening comes just days before the kickoff of Edgewater Live’s 2017 concert series. Concerts will be held on the beach every Thursday starting at 4:30 p.m. from June 8-Aug. 10.
The new Beach House allows the concert series to expand. This year, Edgewater Live will be collaborating with the Cuyahoga Community College Arts Program to bring their performers to the new Centennial Plaza. Student performers will start off the night before the headliner performs on the RTA Main Stage at 6 p.m. You can check out the Edgewater Live concert lineups here.
