Clevelanders are lucky. Where else in the county can anyone find affordable lakefront housing? According to Brian Friedman, executive director of the Northeast Shores Development Corp., “People are moving here from other places, especially the suburbs, making their own lakefront dream homes. A huge number of young families have transplanted here from the Heights area. We’re also attracting a number of empty nesters.”
This, he says, is the only east side neighborhood that has houses with property going right up to the lake. Homeowners even have access to private parks for a nominal fee.
With three state parks and more linear feet of beach than anywhere else in Northeast Ohio, Collinwood also has a 33-acre city park, baseball diamond, outdoor pool, walking paths and bike trails connecting to the Euclid Creek Reservation. Plans for an indoor recreational center are in the works.
