There’s no shortage of personality on our tree-lined streets. That describes our homes but perhaps even more so our residents. No matter the weather, Shaker residents are always ready for a block party, holiday parade or community-wide celebration. Learn more about the city where our public spaces act as a shared living space – where established and new residents all have a place at the table.

Environmentally Conscious

A deep connection to our environment is a defining aspect of what makes living in Shaker Heights different. Our residents enjoy an impressive tree canopy, 220+ miles of sidewalks, 15 miles of shared lanes for biking and running (and growing), community gardens, parks and parklands throughout the entirety of the city. Connect with the nature that soars all around with the best bird watching in Northeast Ohio at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes.

The City is committed to maintenance of that environment. Efforts include sustainability planning, continual education on the changing recycling landscape, installation of solar panels at Shaker Heights High School, the care and replacement of trees when appropriate (part of our recognition as a Tree City by the National Arbor Day Foundation for the past 31 years). Living in Shaker Heights means appreciation for and stewardship of the natural world.

With a 25 minute RTA commute to Tower City in Downtown Cleveland and less than a 10 minute drive to two major highways (I-480 and I-271), Shaker residents find getting “there” a breeze.
