Location matters. This neighborhood, known historically for its livestock yards and breweries, is making its way to being one of the most active and involved communities in Cleveland. With more than 14 active block clubs, monthly neighborhood forums, block parties and many community activities, it shows that great neighbors make great neighborhoods.
With great neighborhood schools, local parks, a convenient location and easy access to both I-90 and I-71, Stockyards is only a short bike ride to Edgewater Park and a quick walk to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo. The Stockyard neighborhood also boasts more than 12 community gardens, the annual Stockyard Neighborhood Bike-A-Thon, Stockyard Steppers (neighborhood walking club), great community events and new projects with public art and murals. There are many unique housing options, including newly rehabbed homes, new construction town homes at Kierland Commons (located at the Joseph & Feiss factory site) and beautiful early 20th century homes.
Saturday afternoons residents spend at the Stockyard Roundups with families enjoying hot dogs, playing games and earning giveaways. Neighborhood leaders sponsor this program, designed to help promote community engagement.
