Cleveland Park is a neighborhood in East Nashville that is located adjacent to the gentrified neighborhoods of Greenwood Neighbors and Maxwell Heights. McFerrin Park is another emerging neighborhood just south of Cleveland Park. The Cleveland Park neighborhood takes its name from the park that was given to the city to manage in 1963.
This area was once the plantation of Thomas Talbot, an early Nashville settler and innkeeper. The Talbot Family Cemetery now lies in the right of way of the interstate. The main street of this neighborhood is Dickerson Pike, which dates back to the 1700s. Robert Cartwright, a Revolutionary War Soldier, was appointed by Davidson County to build a road from Nashville to Goodlettsville. This road became Dickerson Pike and was built along a former buffalo trail. Buffalo statues have been erected at the start of Dickerson Pike to recognize the history of the area and to kickoff a ten year revitalization plan which includes sidewalks and landscaping. The excellent view of the downtown skyline and the abundance of commercial capacity make Dickerson Pike a prime candidate for redevelopment.
In recent years, Cleveland Park has been improving steadily. Here’s reasons why Cleveland Park is considered an Emerging Neighborhood:
