Nowadays the buzz is all good, but East Nashville's Cleveland Park hasn't always had the best reputation. Dogged as it has been over the years by crime and located so close to the sleazy sprawl of Dickerson Pike, Cleveland Park has had to pull itself up by its bootstraps to become known, as it is today, as one of Nashville's most promising up-and-coming neighborhoods. The neighborhood is located from Ellington Parkway and Cleveland Street to Douglas Avenue and Dickerson Pike.

In the past year or so Cleveland Park has been bookmarked by the press as the new "it" neighborhood, ripe for refurbishing. And for all the flack it gets about being close to Dickerson Pike, Cleveland Park is actually smack dab in the middle of one of the very best spots in the city, nestled so near to downtown, to the interstate, and to East Nashville hotspots. Plus, with McFerrin Park just adjacent to it, it's now very near to one of East Nashville's new pulse points, where Mas Tacos, Holland House, and The Pharmacy all convene near the corner of McFerrin Avenue and West Eastland Ave.

And now a mixed-use development called North Fifth is going up on the corner of Lischey and Cleveland Street. The space will include six apartments and 1,000 square feet of retail space when it opens later this year. Also? Cleveland Park holds the distinction of having more trees per acre than almost any other Nashville neighborhood.

Here are just a couple of the things that have been said about Cleveland Park recently:

I've long been suggesting the neighborhood to clients with a modest budget and a soft spot for vintage bungalows.
