    TNT Planning Area 6

    A cohesive and diverse community where all are supportive and involved in fostering the well being of each other. A place that is distinctive in character and aesthetic quality. One that is secure and offers a wide variety of opportunities for learning, working, recreating, resting, and communicating and interacting with others. A place of spirit and pride shared by all.

    Eastwood

    A great place to Live, Work, Learn, and Play!

    Eastwood’s residential area is dominated by one and two-family homes and comprised of many early to mid-20th Century bungalow style houses. There are two senior citizen living complexes, and the Eastwood Senior Center offers programs and services to support the neighborhood’s elderly residents. Blessed Sacrament Church and the Eastwood Baptist Church are active in both the religious and social service needs of the community.

    An Eastwood icon, the Palace Theatre, has recently undergone a complete renovation and is the site of many community events including concerts, fundraisers and meetings. The legendary Carol Channing, Diane Rehm and Robert Goulet have graced the stage since its reopening.

    There is a major neighborhood retail plaza on Grant Boulevard, and a vital business district on James Street soon to be anchored by a new Walgreen’s. Another business corridor in the area is Burnet Avenue. Bristol-Myers Squibb is a corporate neighbor to Eastwood, and Eastwood boasts its own active and growing Chamber of Commerce.

    Huntington Elementary School, Henninger High School, and Blessed Sacrament Elementary School are the major schools in Eastwood.

    Sunnycrest Park is 46 acres of natural beauty providing space for many types of active recreation, including the Frank Salanger Sports Complex with a 400 meter track, softball fields and tennis and basketball courts along with a children’s play area, a 9-hole golf course, and groomed cross-country ski trails in the winter snow. Many leagues, including the Eastwood Bears, use Norwood Park. The Big Little League Complex at Cummings Field, Eastwood Heights, and the fields behind Huntington School provide parks and greenspace for the neighborhood.
