SAN ANTONIO — Marking a significant step in the redevelopment of Hemisfair Park, officials are poised to unveil next week draft plans for a sprawling new “play environment” that includes sand and water features, climbing structures and plazas aimed at attracting children and adults alike.
Once completed, the project will become the first example of what San Antonians can expect in the redevelopment of the area that hosted the 1968 World’s Fair.
“We’re going to put the park back into HemisFair Park,” Mayor Julián Castro said, “and turn it into a fantastic green space where families can enjoy themselves.” The Hemisfair Park Area Redevelopment Corp. is scheduled to present its draft schematic design to the city’s Historic and Design Review Commission next Wednesday for conceptual approval.
