Local Reviews

I am elderly and live alone. At two different neighbors keep watch in case I should need help. People seem to help one another here.

I like that it's close to north Kansas City and downtown. I like that it's near the highway. We're able to live in the suburban neighborhood but very close to the urban area. This area is also up and coming.

I like that it's quiet. I enjoy the accessibility of stores and other conveniences. I like the family style homes.

We are located near several restaurants. We have chains to mom and pop places. We enjoy going to a local Mexican restaurant that his been in the area for 16 years

Captains Bar and Grill it's mostly a bedroom. Community not a lot of businesses and fluff The people are mostly child bearing upper middle class people and professionals

I live in a neighborhood of cute old houses, we are within walking distance of coffee shops, restaurants, bars, etc. there is a sense of community. There is a lot of history here.

About

Kansas City, MO

Overview of Kansas City

Like many communities in the western United States, Hyde Park Kansas City can trace its history back to the mid-1800s. Unlike some communities, the beautiful turn-of-the-century architecture has been preserved, refurbished and commemorated by the neighborhood association, which has also worked to document and share the history of the neighborhood with its citizens. Popular architectural styles have survived, like brick Colonial revivals, Victorian Romanesque-style homes and Kansas City's own Shirtwaist design with brick on the bottom and wooden frame on top.

Despite history dating back to the early 1900's, the modern-day association came out of a neighborhood decline in the 1970s. The association's mission is to celebrate and continue Hyde Park's prestigious history. Today, in addition to helping with and rewarding the preservation and restoration efforts of community members, the group has a crime watch unit, makes beautification efforts and throws community events. The association, a federally recognized nonprofit organization, is open to any community member over the age of 18, including renters of Hyde Park apartments. 

Explore Hyde Park KC Neighborhood

Simply driving or walking around Hyde Park and looking at the beautiful homes and public spaces is a fun pastime, but the neighborhood has plenty of other attractions nearby. The Nelson Atkins Art Museum is one of Kansas City's best art museums. This free institution has more than 33,000 works of art ranging from traditional American and European paintings to Native American and Japanese artworks. The 22-acre Donald J. Hall Sculpture Park is also on the grounds. You can stroll around and admire the more than 30 sculptures or have a picnic with the family on the park's rolling lawn. 

Hyde Park 3 bedroom apartment rentals give families the opportunity to live in a neighborhood that's steeped in history. Hyde Park's homes and businesses sit on a site that was once a watering hole for the original Santa Fe Trail. The neighborhood association and other residents try to keep the communal support of the pioneers alive. Although they may no longer use covered wagons, the community still circles up to improve the area they live in and make a great place for families to live.
