Collinwood is a gritty little slice of heaven located on the north-east side of Cleveland.
Made up of parts of the historic Collinwood Village and Nottingham Township, Collinwood runs along Lake Erie’s shoreline between Bratenahl and Euclid. The southern boundary is roughly the highland area south of Euclid Avenue, going up into East Cleveland and the Heights.
It’s bisected by the CSX railyard and the Route 2/I-90 shoreway, with exits at Eddy Road, E. 140th, E. 152nd/156th and E. 185th Street.
Economic centers include E. 185th Street; Lakeshore Boulevard, home to the Collinwood Rec Center; the Waterloo Arts District, known for its anchor, The Beachland Ballroom; and Five Points, home to Collinwood High School and their proud Railroaders. The neighborhood is served by Northeast Shores Development Corporation and St. Clair-Superior Development Corporation at Collinwood-Nottingham Villages Development Corporation.
Residential neighborhoods are too numerous to mention but are each filled with dedicated, hard-working people with a tenacity and love of community enough to inspire this grassroots effort for 10 years running.
