Where is Shaker Square?

Shaker Square lies between the world-class cultural, educational and health care institutions on Cleveland's east side and the inner-ring suburb of Shaker Heights. It is on Shaker Boulevard, the main east-west road in Shaker Heights. Cleveland meets Shaker Heights a block east of the Square. Though it is within the City of Cleveland, it is in the Shaker Heights School District. That arrangement was made nearly 100 years ago to let city officials send their children to Shaker Schools - and it is still a reason why many city employees and officials live near the Square.

The Square is divided into four quadrants by Shaker Boulevard (Ohio 87) which runs east-west, and by North and South Moreland Boulevard which enter the Square at the north and south. Each quadrant has a building with stores and restaurants and offices on the second floor.

Metered parking is available. Sorry, but without them all the spaces would be used by RTA riders. Metered spaces are in gray on the map below.

The meters along Shaker Boulevard are owned by Cleveland and cost $.25 per hour, with no charge Saturdays and Sundays.

The meters around the Square and behind the northwest quadrant are operated for the Coral Company by a parking service. They cost $.25 for 20 minutes.

In March 2007 a very welcome feature was added to the meters around the Square: a button to press for 15 minutes of free parking. This feature was removed in May 2010, but the Coral Company has advised us that this feature will be restored. (AB May 26, 2011)


Free parking is available in two large parking lots at the Square, shown below in blue:

  • In the northeast quadrant.
    Enter this lot from North Moreland Boulevard
    There's a new walkway through to Shaker Square, so you don't need to walk to North Moreland. It is to the right of the CVS drivethrough window.

  • In the southwest quadrant.
    This lot is behind Shaker Square Cinemas and Dave's.
    Enter this lot from Drexmore Road. Many spaces are marked "Daves" but there are plenty of other spaces. If you are driving east to the Square on Shaker Boulevard will find it very convenient to enter this lot from Shaker Boulevard.

Valet parking is available at Fire, Sasamatsu and Sergio's Sarav restaurants. Some restaurants pay for it.

Getting Here by Taxi

If you don't have use of a car, getting here by cab makes sense, particularly in the evening and on weekends when public transportation runs less frequently.
