Hemisfair is working with placemaking experts from Project for Public Spaces (PPS) and playmaking experts from MIG to create a vision for a well-loved local destination for all ages, with a children’s play experience, that creates an authentic place for San Antonio residents and makes downtown more attractive and livable.

This public destination will be located at the southwest corner of Hemisfair Park formed by Goliad, Water, Alamo, and Chavez streets and is preliminarily named “Plaza de Artes.”

At Hemisfair, the goal is not to just build buildings, but to create irresistible experiences that strengthen the community. Supporting the goal of the new Hemisfair to create a vibrant 24/7 neighborhood that adds real value to downtown, Plaza de Artes is envisioned to be a crossroads of creative energy that epitomizes Hemisfair’s role as a “confluence of cultures.” This exciting social hub for local residents would place a focus on art, culture and play for all ages.
