Tampa's gem of a shopping center has existed only a little more than 10 years, but to walk in the shade of its full-grown trees one would think it much older. As it happens, Old Hyde Park Village sits in the heart of one of the city's oldest historic districts and a few blocks from the sprawling 19th century mansions on Bayshore Boulevard. Landscaped park areas, fountains and tree-lined streets provide a fabulous setting for a selected collection of 65 shops. Restaurants, theaters and residences. The core of its wide appeal is its architecture, elements of which repeat on the facades of the homes in proximity to the shopping center, Brick, wrought iron, columns and porticos, tile, cedar shakes and canvas awnings combine to give the Village its distinctive character. Old Hyde Park Village offers local residents and tourists alike a place to spend a day shopping in fine stores and t enjoy the outdoors at any of five restaurants providing patio dining areas.

The selection of shops is carefully chosen mixes of locally owned boutiques and upscale nationals, including Jacobson's the anchor store. A well-appointed Polo-Ralph Lauren shop, in the center's main fountain area, is a free standing building marked by columns and large picture windows that elegantly frame Mr. Lauren's latest designs. Other national stores represented in the Village include Williams Sonoma, The Sharper Image, Mondi, Ann Taylor, Brooks Brothers and Tailbots, and Restoration Hardware that offers custom fine leather sofas and hand crafted hardwood furniture alongside Tim Allen hammers and gardening necessities.
