15. Landscape

An 1897 study for Washington, D.C. by the renowned landscape architecture firm of Frederick Law Olmstead influenced the layout of many streets in Cleveland Park. Rather than following the standard grid pattern, streets east of 34th Street (Reno Road) and north of Newark Street are curvilinear, irregular in block size, conform to the naturally hilly contours of the land, and reflect the small tributaries of Rock Creek. Quebec Street is illustrative of this type of street design.
