Hyde Park

Community Area: Hyde Park

Between enriching art exhibits and museums, a world-renowned university, and well-kept community green spaces, Hyde Park has a lot to offer.

The lakefront neighborhood is home to the University of Chicago, which has one undergraduate college and five graduate research divisions. The university is the site of the Smart Museum of Art and the Oriental Institute, which draw visitors along with other cultural gems in the area including the Museum of Science and Industry and the DuSable Museum of African American History.

Green Space is another important characteristic of Hyde Park. Offering one of the best views of the Chicago skyline, the neighborhood offers access to Promontory Point (aka The Point) – a man-made peninsula on Lake Michigan that connects to the Lakefront Path. There’s also Jackson Park, where residents can relax, watch sailboats, and play golf and tennis.

Hyde Park has a number of pre-war high-rises, modern high-rises, and architecturally significant mansions. The neighborhood also offers a variety of new construction condominiums, lofts, townhomes, and single-family homes.
