Long Description:
The area occupied by former CL-59 Parma/Midpark Station is now divided among Cuyahoga Community College, Parma's James Day Park (formerly known as Nike Site Park), and Parma Heights's Nathan Hale Park. Inspection of the 1959 aerial on that site shows that the IFC area was in the northeast (Nathan Hale Park). The launcher area was south of Crile Hospital, and is now a circle drive around a pond on the south face of the Cuyahoga Community College. The College itself fills the footprint left by the old Crile Hospital; the roadways that formed a perimeter around the hospital now encircle the College. The roadway that is shown on the left side of the 1959 aerial, passing buildings B and C, is indicated as Sesquicentennial Drive on a modern map. The Ed Thelen site indicates that one building remains from the original site; it is now a maintenance building for the Parma Parks Department. The other noticeable remains of the Nike Site are the rusted barbed wire fences that make a boundary around Nathan Hale Park, separating it from James Day Park to the south and from the surrounding neighborhood on the north and west. This site was in operation from 1957 until 1968. More information is available at nikehercules.tripod.com.
