HEMISFAIR: WHERE SAN ANTONIO MEETS 

Over 40 Years ago, Hemisfair was created for the 1968 World's Fair.  There was little activity after the fair. Today Hemisfair has begun a complete transformation into an urban green space complete with a park and splash pad, restaurants, residential spaces, an area for outdoor concerts and so much more. This project is set to be completed in 2021.
