Welcome to Hyde Park

The perfect blend of urban and suburban lifestyles
In Hyde Park, everything you need and wish for is at your fingertips. This peaceful, walkable neighborhood exudes a luxurious feel, making even the most mundane errands a breeze. The historic area offers upscale dining, shopping, and entertainment. It’s easy to find something for everyone, from families to young professionals to their pets!
The Hyde Park area was first subdivided and developed in 1886 by O.H. Platt, who named the neighborhood after his hometown of Hyde Park in Illinois. Residents flocked to the area after the first Hillsborough River bridge was constructed in 1888, and over the next several decades, the area flourished and ultimately transformed into today’s enticing blend of old and new.
Quiet streets are lined with gorgeous, custom-built homes that are pleasingly close to premium shopping and dining. You’ll see simple Craftsman, classic Colonial Revival, and contemporary Vernacular styles represented by the various bungalows, mansions, single-family homes, and condominiums.

Pair local history with a perfectly aged steak at Bern’s Steak House, a Tampa institution since 1956 that is home to one of the largest wine collections in the world. The dessert room alone is famous around the world. Celebrate a special occasion, or just treat yourself royally at this highly lauded restaurant, where dinner can include cut-to-order prime steaks, locally grown vegetables, and, yes, an extraordinary dessert collection, including strawberry key lime tart and a 12-layer chocolate cake!
