A message from the HPCC Board of Directors


Welcome to Hyde Park!

Hyde Park has a long tradition of welcoming guest to our community. We have been at the forefront of academic, political and cultural history dating back to The Chicago World’s Fair of 1893. Our list of distinguished Hyde Parkers includes five Nobel Prize laureates, first ladies Mary Todd Lincoln and Michelle Obama, lawyer Clarence Darrow, boxer and activist Mohammad Ali, Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle and past United States President Barack Obama.

We are proud of our diverse and eclectic mix of over 100 eateries, shops, cultural attractions, and historic architecture that includes the Museum of Science and Industry, the Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House, the DuSable Museum, and the University of Chicago campus. We hope you enjoy your time in our neighborhood and you find out why Hyde Park, the Jewel on the Lake, is one of Chicago’s most popular tourist attractions.
