"Rennovations Revived this Community"

Commuters who want a smaller residential feel with big city advantages – look no further. The Cleveland neighborhood of northwest Minneapolis, named after President Grover Cleveland, is conveniently located near downtown Minneapolis, Golden Valley, and Maple Grove. The city of Minneapolis is to the east, while the city of Robbinsdale sits to the west.

The neighborhood consists mainly of single-family homes of modest size, but there is a commercial area that is located at the corner of Penn and Lowry. The recent renovation of Lowry Avenue in 2010 brought new opportunities for commercial businesses and home developments to the community. It is also being discussed as a possible neighborhood to participate in a light rail expansion project.
The neighborhood of Cleveland is bordered in part by tree lined trails for pedestrians and bikers, and Theodore Wirth Park is located on Victory Memorial Parkway where residents and visitors can golf, ski, picnic, or hike. Residents of Cleveland include families, retired individuals, and students from a variety of the city’s schools.

This friendly neighborhood hosts Live on the Drive (a community music event), an annual garden tour, several block parties, art crawls, community art and theatre shows and performances, and numerous other social and educational endeavors. The Camden Music School for all ages is also a part of this growing Minneapolis community.

"Good for Commuters of All Ages"

Cleveland is a commuter's paradise. It is a short enough drive to downtown and other central Minneapolis neighborhoods, but far away enough to avoid the noise that comes with living in dens urban communities. Numerous routes are within close reach with both the Mississippi River and I-94 to the east and Bottineau Blvd. just at the southwestern corner. Cleveland's Victory Memorial Parkway also gives the area some bragging rights since the city had declared it a historic district, adding more value to the pleasant tree- shaded route that provides a visually appealing stroll or ride for joggers and bikers.

In addition to Cleveland being a safe and beautiful neighborhood, is it also dirt cheap to live here, making any commute not look so bad. Houses are rarely listed for more than $145,000 and the apartments in the are given to renters for reasonable prices as well. With the area being a historic district, there are of course going to be many historic homes, creating an overall picturesque residential community. While many of Minneapolis's neighborhoods are most students, young professionals or families, Cleveland is quite diverse in terms of resident types. Parents can safely and happily stroll their children down the sidewalk while a young ambitious mind makes his or her way to their new out of college job. Retirees can also feel at home in this community, especially since the Theodore Wirth Golf Course is not too far away. Cleveland is a suitable neighborhood for those that want to take it easy.
