Welcome to Cleveland Park

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.

With its charming Queen Anne homes, tree-lined streets, and quaint commercial center, Cleveland Park has the trappings of a small town with easy access to the big city. Its residents prize its quiet charm and close proximity to parks, shops, and eateries.
