OUR NEIGHBORHOOD

Old Hyde Park is located in midtown, in the heart of Kansas City's urban core.  Our community is bound by Linwood on the north, Gillham on the east, 39th on the south and Broadway on the west. 

Main is the major north-south artery running through the heart of our neighborhood.  About half of our neighborhood abuts Main street on the west, and the other half abuts Main street on the east. 

The hundreds of residents in Old Hyde Park enjoy a vibrant and diverse community with tree-lined streets in a highly walkable neighborhood. 

Old Hyde Park uniquely reflects the Kansas City’s golden age of growth in the late 19th and early 20th centuries with a great variety of architectural styles – exuberant Victorian, more subdued Classical and Colonial Revival, variations on traditional Craftsman theme, and a unique Midwestern Prairie style. 

 

Aficionados of history will find a rich assortment of architectural styles originating from our neighborhood, suh as the “Kansas City Shirtwaist” single family homes and "Colonnaded"  walk-up apartment buildings as well as larger-scale landmarks such as the Bellerive Hotel, which has now been converted into apartments.
