Named after the president Grover Cleveland, the neighborhood used to be a summer retreat for the affluent families of D.C. The hilly topography of the park provides a refreshing breeze of wind, much sought after in the lowlands upon which the centerpiece of D.C. was built. To this day, Cleveland Park remains a very laid-back and serene neighborhood, not much affected by modernization and development efforts around the city.
You’ll Never Want to Leave
There are some, who enjoy what the big city has to offer. Restless nightlife, modern entertainment and a flowthrough of pure energy are just the things that give your everyday life the extra kick. But then there are those, who want their own island of peace to spend time with themselves, their family and the nature. Cleveland Park is just that place – leafy hiking trails, small family-owned shops and a sincere feeling of always being welcome make it one of the best places in D.C. for raising your family.
People come here to settle down and build a family nest, and they tend to stay in Cleveland Park long after the offspring have started their own lives. Don’t come off thinking that life here is dull, though. Cleveland Park has everything you could expect from a small, self-contained town – a post office, a historic movie theater and a handful of local restaurants and dining rooms, like on that serves only steak frites, or another one run by a former White house chef. If you head down to Connecticut Avenue, you’ll find charming small businesses like an artisan lamp store and a framing shop. All this gives Cleveland Park the small town feel – while at the same time being located a rock’s throw away from downtown D.C.

In the interior of Cleveland park, however, you’ll find large condo and apartment buildings, boasting a variety of one, two, three and even four-bedroom options. Properties in Cleveland Park don’t come cheap, but they have a huge added value – the benefits of a tightly-knit and active community leading the laid back lifestyle.
In Cleveland Park, you can have the best of both worlds, leading a quiet and peaceful life in a green and friendly neighborhood, while at the same time being a rock’s throw away from downtown D.C.
