Notable places nearby
The CTS Rapid Transit was extended to West Park station on November 15, 1958, and the station functioned as the western terminus of the line for 10 years. There was a small rail yard just southwest of the station. When the line was extended to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport in 1968, the yard was removed and a new yard was built just beyond Brookpark station. The station building was connected to the platform by a tunnel extending under the westbound track.
In May 1996, RTA completed a $4-million renovation of the station. The renovation made the station ADA compliant.
