Neighborhood Snapshot: Hyde Park

Situated in the most southern point of Boston, about 7 miles from Downtown, is Hyde Park. Home prices in the neighborhood have been increasing as house hunters search for an urban/suburban mix feel, but it’s still a developing area with more opportunities than West Roxbury, Jamaica Plain, or Roslindale.

What to Know

This peaceful section of Hyde Park was home to the late Mayor Menino and is dotted with small capes along tree-line, leafy streets. Developers have started to turn their eyes to this area, specifically near the commuter rail station which is only a couple of stops from Back Bay station.

Everett Square Theatre

The Everett Square Theatre was built as a moving picture house. It also hosted live vaudeville, musical, and other performances. The Historic Boston Institute worked with the theater owner to re-create and install the original “Everett Square Theatre” sign that once hung over the entry and restored and re-opened the theater’s boarded up foyer to create space for temporary art installations, displays, and events to help revive awareness of the theater space and build support for its eventual rehabilitation.

Love retro? Then you will love this spot built in the 70s. It’s an ice cream parlor/bowling alley and one of Boston’s best-kept secrets. Definitely worth checking out whether you’re interested in buying in the area or not.
