Established in the 1891, Hyde Park is considered Austin’s first neighborhood. It is a central Austin hub of history and culture. Hyde Park is located in ZIP code 78751 and is bordered by 45th Street to the north, Guadalupe Street to the west, Duval St. to the east, and 38th Street to the south.
Hyde Park is known for its diversity among businesses, homes, and residences. Quite a few of the homes, condos, and apartment complexes have been revamped in the past decade – but one can still find craftsman houses and tutor style homes within the boundaries of this region. Hyde Park has often been described as an urban forest thanks to its variety of greenery.
Among the shaded streets you can find the Shipe Park, as well as the enchanting Elisabet Ney Museum. Children of Hyde Park attend AISD schools such as Robert E. Lee Elementary, Kealing Middle School, and McCallum High School.
The local businesses and restaurants of the areas, plus the closeness to downtown, the Capitol, and the University, are what draw many to this neighborhood. The town square on 43rd street has options like Fresh Plus, the famous Hyde Park Bar & Grill, and Mother’s Café, as well as specialty spots like Antonelli’s cheese shop, Quack’s bakery, and Dolce Vita Gelato Cafe.
