Guide To: Cleveland Park Neighborhood in Nashville, TN
Named for its park, Cleveland Park neighborhood may be the fastest growing, booming-est area east of the river, right now. This historic streetcar suburb was perhaps later to the redevelopment game than some of its better known neighbors, but Cleveland Park does not show any sign of slowing down.
With the recent additions of James Beard chef Sean Brock’s restaurant Audrey and local culinary favorite, Folk, Cleveland Park started to shine in a new, much more public light. That said, it’s still a sleepy pocket of the city defined largely by generous lots, historic homes, walkable streets, and unexpected shops, like Vernon Winfrey’s Barber Shop (yep, that’s Oprah’s father), Wilburn Street Tavern, East Nashville Beer Works, Redheaded Stranger, and more.
In Cleveland Park, you’re only a stone’s throw from Top Golf on one side and from some of East Nashville’s favorite haunts on the other, including Mas Tacos Por Favor and The Pharmacy Burger Parlour and Beer Garden. Extremely well-placed, Ellington Parkway, Dickerson Pike, Gallatin Avenue flank the Cleveland Park area, making it easy and quick to move through town.
Combine proximity and convenience with a recent overlay allowing every house to support an accessory dwelling (read: rental income), and you’ve got yourself unparalleled value. Appreciation is on the rise and coziness is, too. With more local businesses moving in, it’s increasingly common to see your neighbor out walking her dog or your friend at the community pool with his son. With businesses like Oracle and Amazon bringing hundreds of new residents to Nashville, it’s a near certainty that the increasingly popular Cleveland Park will be voted Homecoming Queen AND Student Body President in the coming years.
