Getting Around Hyde Park
Around Hyde Park
Hyde Park contains both single-family and attached homes. As the city of Austin continues to urbanize, neighborhoods like Hyde Park see a rise in apartment buildings, condos, and attached homes. Nearly all the streets in the neighborhood are residential, so housing options are available throughout the Hyde Park area. While there are new construction condos, single-family homes are more prominent.
On the western border of Hyde Park, residents enjoy vegan-friendly pizza options along with a few other eateries lining Guadalupe Street. The residential quality of Hyde Park proper prohibits a high volume of businesses from opening within neighborhood limits, but Hyde Park denizens can easily access top-notch dining options nearby in North Loop, Mueller, and the University District.
This residential pocket of Austin gives off a neighborly vibe with its quiet streets lined with single-family homes and thoroughfares perfect for dog walking. The large cache of vintage homes, including Victorian, American Craftsman, Queen Anne, and Tudor-style buildings highlight Hyde Park’s designation as a historic district. While the neighborhood is mainly residential, Guadalupe Street on the western border has some restaurants and retail stores.
Although the residential aspect of the neighborhood makes this a quiet community on a Friday night, the location makes it easy to travel to busier next-door neighborhoods. With the University of Texas just south of Hyde Park, there is no shortage of dive bars or music venues in the University District. A 15-minute drive into Downtown Austin offers more options from upscale rooftop bars to trendy nightclubs. If you want to stay local, stop by Hyde Park Theater to catch a show put on by Austin’s alternative theater scene.
End your weekend visiting a piece of history right in the heart of Hyde Park at the Elisabet Ney Museum, a free museum housed in a historic home that contains more than 50 works from the sculptor. Across the street is the two-acre Shipe Neighborhood Park containing athletic fields and courts, a playground and wading pool for kids, and open lawns for picnicking. End the day at one of the nearby restaurants and cafes a few blocks away.
