Bo Rein Stadium Project

Renovating Excellence In Niles

It has never been more important for our community to come together in an effort to restore Bo Rein Stadium. For the past 80 years, Bo Rein has been home to some of the greatest sporting events in Northeast Ohio. These events include countless athletic events, graduation ceremonies, the Relay for Life, state playoff games, and community events.

Originally erected as WPA project in the 1930's, Bo Rein Memorial Stadium (formerly Riverside Stadium) opened as the home athletic facility for the Niles City Schools. In the late 1960's, nearly 40 years after its erection, it became apparent that the original stadium was not meeting the needs of our community. Together, both the schools and businesses united to raise the funds to turn Riverside Stadium into one of Ohio's finest athletic facilities.

Now, 40 years beyond expansion, the time to return the stadium to "Ohio's Best" is upon us. Understandably, time, exposure to the elements, and advances in technology all make now the right time for Renovating Excellence In Niles.

McKinley Alma Mater

McKinley Alma Mater,
Guiding star above,
Forever in our gratitude
We offer thee our love.
In Joys and in all sorrows,
We shall e'er be true,
While in our hearts we ever love
thy flag of Red and Blue!
McKinley Alma Mater,
Tender, brave and true,
So proudly in eternal skies
Now gleam thy Red and Blue,
Then proudly shall thy mantle,
O'er thy children fly,
While in our hearts we ever praise
Thy name McKinley High!
