Owner description: Built for the 1968 HemisFair in honor of the city's 250th anniversary, this delightful park is a local favorite, particularly the water gardens and the kid-designed wood and sand playground, which includes a castle and space tunnel. The highlight is the looming 750-foot tall Tower of the Americas, offering a terrific view of the city.

We walked through the park to visit the Tower. The park has some nice seating and interesting waterfalls. There was also a nice play ground for children.

The water fountains surrounding the tower are pretty nice. The ride to the top however, requires you to purchase a ticket to the movie as well. We skipped the movie. The view from the top is pretty good - probably better at night.

Our view of the park was our walk into the Park to go see the Tower of the Americas. It contains some museums, but we did not have the time to do one of them. But the water fountains surrounding the base of the Tower of Americas are just gorgeous and made me wish I could just sit and enjoy for a long time. There was a nice children's play area that would be great for families with kids who are tire dof seeing the sites. This park rests at the edge of the River Walk and can be accessed from either the River Walk or street side.

Back when the Hemisphere opened, the times we live in were what they were looking forward to. They stood in the Sixties and built a park to remind you where Texas came from, where it fit in the world and where it was going. I was filled with awe and wonder then and I still enjoy my visits.
