HistoryEdit

The suburb is named after London's esteemed Hyde Park area, and enjoys the same associations of prestige as its London counterpart. Hyde Park was declared a residential area in 1955, and has since become home to the top echelons of South African society. Its tree-lined streets and multi-acre estates with large and luxurious historic homes live side-by-side with their more modern security estate neighbour's.
