Cleveland Park, located on Queen Ave. N just north of Lowry Ave. N, is adjacent to the Lucy Craft Laney at Cleveland Park Community School. With a baseball/softball field, basketball courts, wading pool and totlot playground, the neighborhood park is a big attraction for kids whether or not school is in session. Other parks nearby include Jordan Park and Folwell Park, which offers youth programs and other activities.
Both the park and the elementary school that once stood nearby are named after Grover Cleveland, the only President of the United States to serve two non-consecutive terms in office. Cleveland Park is one of several parks across the city to be developed in conjunction with the school board. First established in 1951, the park was redeveloped in 1993 to coincide with the addition of the new school. Subsequent renovations to the park include updates to the wading pool in 2005.
