Kamm's Corners is a neighborhood on the West Side of Cleveland, Ohio. It is roughly bounded by the Rocky River Reservation of the Cleveland Metroparks on the west, I-90 and the city of Lakewood to the north, the New York Central Railroad tracks (now Amtrak) to the east, and Puritas Road to the south. According to the 2018 U.S. census estimate, the neighborhood has the highest concentration of Irish Americans in Cleveland and Cuyahoga County.[2]

Named after local merchant Oswald Kamm, Kamm's Corners is one of four sub-neighborhoods that comprise the larger historical neighborhood of West Park, the others being Jefferson, Puritas–Longmead, and Riverside.[3] Named for early settler John West, West Park was annexed to Cleveland in 1923 and became the last large suburb to become part of the city.[4]

Kamm's Corners Plaza and Warren Village are the major retail centers of the neighborhood.
