About Hemisfair

Two Nonprofits, One Mission.

Hemisfair Park Area Redevelopment Corporation (HPARC) and the Hemisfair Conservancy are working together to redevelop and activate the site of the 1968 World’s Fair into a series of three parks in the heart of San Antonio.

In 2009, the San Antonio City Council established HPARC, a 501(c)3 nonprofit local government corporation that is governed by a 13-member board comprised of local stakeholders and two City executive staff members. Board members provide direction to Hemisfair staff and are appointed by the San Antonio City Council to serve four-year terms. HPARC is responsible for acquiring property, planning, developing, constructing, managing, maintaining and financing projects at Hemisfair.

Hemisfair has a goal of becoming financially self-sustaining.

In addition to environmental and cultural sustainability, Hemisfair has a goal of becoming financially self-sustaining. The Hemisfair Conservancy, an independent 501(c)3 with its own board of directors, was created to raise, manage and allocate philanthropic dollars for parks improvement projects through generous contributions from a broad variety of individual donors, family foundations, corporations and other grant-making sources.
