This episode of Searching For San Antonio features Andres Andujar, CEO - Hemisfair Park Area Redevelopment Corporation (HPARC). In this interview with Andres, you will hear about what has been going on at Hemisfair the last few years and what's planned for the future. You also get to hear why it is so important for San Antonio to have a great urban park like Hemisfair.
The HPARC was created by City Council in 2009 to redevelop the former site of the 1968 World’s Fair in San Antonio, Texas. The HPARC is dedicated to the transformation of Hemisfair into a sustainable, self-funded urban district with residences, local businesses, unique programming and three parks—Yanaguana Garden, Civic Park (Phase II) and Tower Park (Phase III). Hemisfair is where San Antonio meets: it is a vibrant gathering place for a day with friends and the city’s biggest celebrations. HPARC is a 501(c)3 local government corporation, supported in part by the Hemisfair Conservancy, an independent 501(c)3.
