A historic neighborhood located just north of the University of Texas.
A hip village that embodies old Austin’s laidback cool.
Hyde Park, Austin’s first suburb, is a historic neighborhood located just north of the University of Texas. The plentiful red oaks and pecan trees planted generations ago still shade peaceful streets anchored by the vivid bungalows and decorative Victorians inhabited by renters and longtime owners alike.
Maybe it’s the proximity to the university or maybe it’s the well-preserved heritage, but Hyde Park feels like an easygoing, self-contained oasis that’s impervious to the frenetic energy of the city around it. Clusters of homegrown, non-chain restaurants, like Hyde Park Bar and Grill and Julio’s, and indie retailers, like Antonelli’s Cheese Shop and Exploded Records, add to the unique aura.
Shipe Park is a major attraction with its pool, playscape, and tennis courts. This authentically Austin neighborhood is also home to the nine-hole Hancock Golf Course, Texas' oldest golf course.
Hyde Park is served by the Austin Independent School District.
