Historic Hyde Park
The heart of the Northend


Dave Green
Fun, history and atmosphere


History

Hyde Park is on the National Historic Register for several reasons. First, the building and architecture of the areas is unique. Secondly, a "sub" urban retail area of the age of Hyde Park is unusual for any community. It rivals such famous areas like the Niles District in Oakland for its character and quality. If you would like to learn more about the area and some of buildings that give Hyde Park its character click here.

Northend Center of Activity

Every day in Hyde Park is filled with activity. It has become the official mountain and touring bike headquarters of the Treasure Valley. With access to the Boise foothills trails and Hill Road, Hyde Park is where the trail ends. As the historic center of the neighborhood, Hyde Park is also a gathering place for kids and the subject and beneficiary of strong community participation from Boise business and schools.

Parilla Grill and the Hyde Park Pub offer music in addition to great food and spirits, and if you're looking for a special dining experience Hyde Park Pub, Java, Sun Ray Cafe (formerly Lucky 13 Pizza), Goody's Goodies and Casa Mexico are among the best of Boise.

Hyde Park is the unofficial HQ for cyclists and mountain bikers from all over the region who frequent the many, excellent trails in the Boise Foothills, Hill Road and Bogus Basin to Cartwright Road. Hyde Park is also home to some of the best antique shops and specialty stores in the Treasure Valley.

Challenges

North 13th Street in Hyde Park was upgraded in the early 1980s through the cooperation of area property owners like Phil Murelaga and the Hyde Park Merchants Association. Maintaining the area's character and viability year-round while property values continue to explode is creating new challenges.

CONFUSED! Would like to come to the Hyde Park / camelback Park ?? street fair, Are these parks one-in-the same? There is NO directions on either website, other than the street name, Not everybody knows were 13th st. Put directions from Interstate 184 or 84 since most people are familar with the Interstates #'s
