This park is big and there's plenty for the kids to do and play on. The facilities were clean and the playground well appointed.

The few blocks that make up this area of Boise, are walkable, friendly , and offer a few shops, cafes', candy and coffee shops. There is a real sense of neighborhood here, at the foot of the Camelback Mts. My husband and I enjoyed lunch ( great Cobb Salad, grilled chicken sandwiches, burgers) at Harry's Pub and Grill there. Nice... More

We had several local people telling us to go to Hyde Park. Not really sure what the buzz was all about. About 2 blocks of stores and restaurants and that's it...i was sorely disappointed by the area, i was expecting so much more!

As tourists visiting Boise I am glad that made the time to actually go to the Ice Cream and Candy store and walk the two or three short blocks to see what was there. We had been in the area earlier in our visit to bicycle to Camelback Park and get some fresh produce at the tent set up off... More

Hyde Park offers a several locally owned shops, eateries, and watering holes. I say this instead of bars because the atmosphere is so different than the average bar scene. Hyde Park is more of a family friendly area, but doesn't offer a lot for younger kids. However, Camelback Park is just down the street and kids love it. The park... More

Hyde Park is interesting. I know many people who live in Boise (myself included) who love this part of town. I find it to be a little bit of a throwback from the '70s. Lots of hippie types and New Age shops. Some of the restaurants I hear are good, but I don't spend much time there.

As other reviewers have said, this very small historic area in North Boise has cute shops, a couple of cafes, and some restored buildings. It's the kind of effort that has been tried in OldTown Sacramento, Gastown in Vancouver, BC, Port Townsend, Washington, and it really is fine for a first visit, or if you are a local, it may...

I'm not sure what I was expecting but I was definately expecting more. This is a quaint little area in an old neighorhood with overpriced odd shops and overpriced small resturants and pubs. If you like that sort of thing, okay but not for me.

I walked to Hyde Park from Boise - it's quite a hike. It's a cute town with plenty of trendy restaurants and antique shops. I enjoyed visiting the book store - it's unusual and worth the stop.

We only go to Hyde Park area when the Tropical Cowboys are playing at the Sun Ray. Love their music and makes it worthwhile. Otherwise, the area doesn't have a lot of dining variety and is filled with left-wing nut cases that spoil the environment of the area.
