Folks in search of a quality west-side neighborhood to call home have been setting down roots in West Park/Kamm's Corners area for decades. Attracted by quaint tree-lined streets, sturdy and attractive homes from the 1920s and 1930s, and a tight-knit sense of community, Clevelanders have long made this one of the most beloved corners of the city.

Modern, updated streetscapes continue to brighten the block, with new sidewalks, streetlamps, benches and planters -- all part of nearly $70 million in civic improvements. This has attracted a flush of new business, with newer establishments like West Park Station and Big Daddy's Cheesesteaks joining venerable haunts like the Public House.

Generating the most buzz lately is the Kamm's Corners Farmers' Market, which is held outdoors from June through October and attended by over two dozen vendors. Proximity to the MetroParks, downtown Cleveland, and regional hospitals make this community a gem of the near-west side.
