; Built over the mostly scraped remains of an historic working-class neighborhood for the 1968 World’s Fair (catalyzing SA’s conservation movement), the 15 acres of Hemisfair Park, linked to the popular River Walk, is now teeming with attractions. From the Tower of the Americas it is an easy walk to prime picnic spots, a children’s playground, and soothing water effects, as well as the Instítuto de México, the Institute of Texan Cultures, a children’s playground, the Convention Center, and Southtown’s many restaurants, bars, and art spaces. Soon to be “improved” by the City, so enjoy its current tranquility while you can.
