Hemisfair was built in San Antonio to host the 1968 World’s Fair. The 15-acre park is landscaped with fountains and waterfalls offering an escape from the city streets of downtown. Today, Hemisfair attractions include the 750-foot Tower of the Americas, the Institute of Texan Cultures and Instituto Cultural de Mexico and the new Yanaguana Garden, a public art-filled playground for kids and grown-ups alike.
