History

Today North Park Estates is a quiet neighborhood of tree-lined streets, buffered from the traffic and noise of Lorain Road, yet still convenient to everything.  It wasn’t always this way…

What is now North Park Down on the farmEstates used to be part of the rich agricultural history of North Olmsted.  In its early days, North Olmsted was primarily a farming community.  In the 1960’s the city exploded from a sleepy town into one of the fastest developing areas in the country.  As part of that development, many former farms were turned into housing subdivisions.

North Park Estates was one such converted farm.  Part of a truck-farming operation, most of our homes are in former tomato, pepper, or corn fields!  The only hint of the past is a glimpse of the original lane from Porter Road into the fields, which can still be recognized by a line of trees on Andorra Drive.

Our subdivision was completed in several phases by several builders.  That’s why we enjoy a wide variety of home styles in our neighborhood.
