This year’s tour will feature nine of Hyde Park’s historic homes. Beginning at Kate Jackson Park, visitors will weave their way through the neighborhood touring various styles of homes from the early 20th century and also enjoying delicacies from several local restaurants. New to the tour this year, a “Pop-Up History Center” will elaborate on the rich history of the area as a Tampa treasure. In addition, the “Tree-Mendous Tampa” Community Tree Program team will be planting a tree while educating attendees on how to obtain free trees and conserve the urban forest and shade canopy of Hyde Park.
The proceeds of the Home Tour will be used to fund HHPNA’s ongoing operations. Past HHPNA projects include:
- the design and construction of Bern’s Park on Howard Avenue,
- the installation of historic street signs throughout the neighborhood and
- working with the Crosstown Authority to renovate the underpass at Swann Avenue.
Current capital projects include the renovation of Swann Pond.
