BROOK PARK, Ohio — Brookpark Skateland will not reopen after a fire caused extensive damage to the building in September.
“It is with great sadness that the Bradnan family must announce we will not be re-opening our Rink after our major fire,” states a Facebook post from the proprietors of the rink. “The fire and smoke damage was very extensive and the age of the building is a big concern.”
Beloved by thousands of Clevelanders over a span of five decades, Brookpark Skateland opened its doors in 1960. This is a sad day for everyone with childhood memories of this special place.
