Hyde Park is adjacent to the University of Tampa and Downtown. Roughly, the neighborhood’s boundaries are Hillsborough Bay to the east, Kennedy Blvd to the north, Bayshore Boulevard to the east and south, and Armenia Avenue to the west. Major thoroughfares within the historical district include Kennedy Boulevard, Bayshore Boulevard, Lee Roy Selmon Expressway (SR 618), Howard Avenue, and Swann Avenue. Entrepreneurs have started small companies using NEVs to shuttle pedestrians from the area to other core districts, such as Downtown and Ybor City, to facilitate the connection between Tampa’s core neighborhoods.


The Hyde Park neighborhood was established in the 1880s when railroad financier Henry B. Plant built the first bridge across the Hillsborough River at Lafayette Street (now Kennedy Boulevard). James Watrous built the first house in the neighborhood in 1882 at 1307 Morrison Ave. A1 Bed Bug Exterminator Tampa

Growth occurred rapidly, and a street car line was put in on Swann Ave and Rome Ave. This is the reason for the wideness of the two streets, while most in the neighborhood are much narrower. The area where Old Hyde Park Village is today was initially called Cork Ave. Dakota Ave., Cork Ave., and Inman Ave. intersect near where the British pay phone stands today. The only extant part of Cork Ave. is called Snow Ave.
