Hyde Park Real Estate and Community Information

Hyde Park Real Estate and Community Information

One of the oldest communities in Tampa, Hyde Park is a popular place to call home. The area's charm and proximity to downtown Tampa make it the ideal location for professionals who want the amenities and convenience of the city, with a side of that “Old Tampa neighborhood” ambience. Hyde Park's established, close-knit community feel also makes the neighborhood exceptionally desirable. Its proximity to Tampa's city center means that you get the best of urban living; there are not only single-family homes in the area, but also condominiums and townhouses.

Location

Hyde Park's location has always made it a sought after part of the Tampa Bay area. Only minutes from downtown and the University of Tampa, Hyde Park is also very close to Bayshore Avenue, a waterfront stretch where the community goes to enjoy Florida's sunshine, stroll along the bay, or work out. Along with offering a short commute to both work and play, Hyde Park provides easy access to several major thoroughfares like the Crosstown Expressway, Interstate 275, and Interstate 4. The area offers sports fans both Raymond James Stadium (home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) and Steinbrenner Field (springtime home of the New York Yankees). Tampa International Airport is less than ten minutes away. Tampa's “twin city,” St. Petersburg is just across the bridge.

Things to Do

Hyde Park offers more than old-Florida charm. The area has long been known for its excellent dining and shopping. Old Hyde Park Village is home to a number of upscale local restaurants and shops. Popular stores like Brooks Brothers and Pottery Barn anchor the village. On Saturdays you'll find a farmers market, and the village square often serves as a venue for community charity events and concerts. It's easy to reach Tampa's many sporting events from Hyde Park, whether you want to watch football, baseball, or hockey. The nearby Tampa Times Forum draws nationally recognized acts, from musicians and comedians, to exciting cultural exhibitions. Just minutes away in downtown Tampa, the David A Straz Performing Arts Center hosts Broadway shows, concerts, and other cultural events. Next door, kids will get a kick out of the Glazer Children's Museum. Young professionals often head to South Howard (called SoHo) on the weekends, to enjoy the street's numerous restaurants, clubs, and bars.

Living

Hyde Park has long been home to people who work downtown or at the University of Tampa. It's popular among families, who love to visit the nearby park on Rome Avenue. The area has increasingly drawn young professionals, who appreciate the local night life, wonderful outdoor spaces, and easy commute to work.
