About the Club

In 1922, a group of friends and neighbors formed the Club to "be a social and recreational center of the best neighborhood in Washington."

Over the years, the Cleveland Park Club has evolved into a wonderful community treasure where we gather to swim, meet for potluck suppers, and attend children's activities and adult lectures.


The Club is managed by a Board of Governors elected by the membership. All Board members are members of the Club and serve on a voluntary basis.

Please park on Ordway Street and Newark Street (about 1 block south of the Club).  See the map to the right, or click here for directions from Google Maps.
