COMMUNITY. CULTURE. COMMERCE

A strong sense of community and civic pride.

Cleveland Park draws its name from President Grover Cleveland, who built a summer home here and started a long tradition of Washingtonians moving up Connecticut Avenue for the cool summer breezes. When the streetcar arrived and connected the area to downtown, the neighborhood grew quickly and filled with stately early-20th-century houses.  

Your neighbors and your favorite spots.

The neighborhood association is very active and engaged in all the happenings that impact Cleveland Park. With a variety of shops and restaurants on Connecticut Avenue, you rarely need to wander far from home for life’s creature comforts or necessities. Thanks to an easy commute by metro or car, Cleveland Park is filled with people who work in official Washington. 

NEIGHBORHOOD OVERVIEW

A slow but stimulating pace in a bucolic setting.

Cleveland Park is perfect for nature lovers who come to experience its tree-sheltered streets and proximity to Rock Creek Park. There is little congestion in the neighborhood beyond the main retail strip, which was developed as one of the nation’s first park-and-shop strip malls. 

An abundance of nightlife options.

Locals are fiercely loyal to their neighborhood retail along the strip, where you can do everything from buying the makings of a dinner party to dining out to catching a movie. Just steps away from these conveniences, you will find Rock Creek Park right at your doorstep for a hike or bike ride after work. It’s easy to fall into comfortable weeknight and weekend routines centered around shopping locally and enjoying the great outdoors.
