About Hyde Park
Established as one of Austin’s first subdivisions in 1891, Hyde Park neighborhood was marketed as an area with ‘fine streets and perfect shade’. Today the area is still perfectly shaded with magnificent oak trees and stately homes from the early Victorian era. Cottages and Craftsman-style bungalows filled in the available lots during the 1920s and 1930s. Though the original street-car lines have long been removed, Hyde Park’s location in the heart of central Austin appeals to those who enjoy an inner-city community with every daily necessity at their fingertips.
Where is Hyde Park?
Defined by the original boundaries of an actual park in the late 1880s, Hyde Park is set between 38th Street on the south and 45th Street on the north. The eastern edge is Duval Street and Guadalupe is to the west. The Hyde Park Neighborhood Association has increased the area to include a few more blocks to the north of 45th Street and homes in this area are similar in style to many of the original bungalows from the earlier timeframe. Easy access to downtown and UT (only 1.5 miles) along Guadalupe or Lamar makes the area convenient for students, professors or anyone who loves living in the heart of Austin and because the area is situated between IH35 and Mopac, you can get in and out of the city center on a moment’s notice.
