Cleveland Circle straddles the border of Brookline and Boston which only becomes important when observing the overnight parking ban for Brookline. Here’s a little secret clue: if you look at the street signs, it’s green in Boston, white in Brookline. Also notable is the non-permit parking options on one side of each Sutherland and Strathmore Roads for those who may have out of state license plates. There is a large Boston College student and faculty population in Cleveland Circle due to its proximity to the main campus. A popular outdoor destination for runners and dog walkers is the Chestnut Hill Reservoir, a 1.56 mile running path. Many eating and shopping conveniences line the streets along Beacon Street and Chestnut Hill Avenue. Cleveland Circle sits at the end of the C line branch of the MBTA green line with easy access to 3 of the 4 green line branches (B, C and D) essentially serving all options in and out of the city. Commuting by car is relatively simple along nearby Route 9 or Beacon and Commonwealth Avenues both in and out of downtown Boston.

Ironically, Cleveland Circle is considered both a desirable location and affordable. Brownstone apartment buildings and condominiums line the many side streets of Cleveland Circle and the population is primarily young, active and transient.
