Hyde Park Historic District

Tampa’s Most Distinguished Address

In the 1880s, a group of wealthy citrus growers, cattle ranchers and shipping magnates such as James Watrous, Alfred Swann and William Morrison cleared land and built grand homes along today’s Bayshore Boulevard. By 1910, the area became known as Hyde Park, home to Tampa’s elite.

Today, Hyde Park remains Tampa Bay’s most prestigious historic neighborhood, its scenic, oak-tree-shaded streets brimming with some of the region’s finest destinations for shopping, dining and nightlife, including the upscale restaurants and retailers of Hyde Park Village, and South Howard Avenue right around the corner.

Bayshore Boulevard

The world’s longest continuous sidewalk, Bayshore Boulevard is an active, 5-mile linear park connecting to all the exciting dining, culture, recreation and entertainment springing up along Downtown Tampa’s new 2.5-mile Riverwalk.

With Hyde Park House at its center, Bayshore Boulevard and the Riverwalk form a continuous waterfront trail through the heart of the city. Step out the door and you can walk or bike all the way to top destinations from Ballast Point Park and the Tampa Yacht Club to Tampa Heights, and from the Channel District to the Ybor City Landmark Historic District – without ever having to get in a car.

An Ideal Location

Located within Tampa’s premier public school district, Hyde Park House is also convenient to Tampa General Hospital and the Peter O. Knight general aviation facility on nearby Davis Islands, as well as Palma Ceia Golf & Country Club, Memorial Hospital, the Selmon Expressway, I-275, Tampa International Airport, and the Downtown and Westshore business districts.
