Location

North of Lakeshore Boulevard starting at the Joseph A Farrell Memorial fishing pier and going east toward E 242nd Street 

Description

In 2009, Euclid's Waterfront Improvement Plan established a $30M vision for the municipalities' Lake Erie shoreline. Phase I was the construction of the Joseph A Farrell Memorial Fishing Pier. Phase II is a 3/4 mile public multi-modal, non-motorized trail, shoreline stabilization and habitat restoration project that will provide unprecedented public access to our region's greatest natural resource: Lake Erie.

Purpose

This historic, precedent -setting second phase of the Euclid Waterfront Improvement Plan promotes economic development, expands habitat, improves water quality, and mitigates erosion. It also connects nearly 50,000 residents to new cobble beaches and recreational oppurtunities on the Lake because 88 individual littoral property owners signed easement agreements with the City of Euclid representing a unique/ public private partnership and strategy to increase public access and prevent erosion on Lake Erie.
