Hemisfair Park has been in the throes of rejuvenation since the master plan for the site of the 1968 World’s Fair was approved late last year.
This Saturday, the first portion of the massive overhaul is scheduled to open. Yanaguana Garden makes up a little over 10 percent of the entire site, which will eventually comprise 37 acres.
When completed in 2020, Hemisfair will be 50 percent public parkland. 40 percent of the site will be leased to developers by the City of San Antonio for mixed-use buildings.
