Some residents ride their bicycles to work.

Shaker Heights is known both for the K-12 International Baccalaureate schools it keeps as well as for its housing stock and excellent city services. Lomond’s affordable housing includes single-family homes and two-family rentals on tree lined streets with sidewalks.

Gridley Triangle Park, a small park off Kenyon Road, an orchard on Avalon Rd., and two community gardens provide open green spaces within the neighborhood.
