Hyde Park is an older, historic neighborhood in Austin and one of the most desirable places to live for many because of its residential atmosphere, safety, sense of community, and convenient location.
Hyde Park is located close to the University of Texas and to downtown. The neighborhood is quiet and residential, with mostly single-family homes. There are not as many shops and restaurants as in some other areas, but there are many amenities in adjacent neighborhoods just a short walk or bus ride away. Residents consist mainly of families, graduate students, and professors.
