Originally built to host the 1968 World’s Fair, HemisFair Park is a beautiful urban park with everything from historic homes to museums, playgrounds, and more. Come with your group, your friends, your children, or just your dog for a beautiful walk in the Texas sunshine through lush landscapes, beautifully constructed waterfalls, and cultural attractions of HemisFair Park.
Beautiful fountains featuring cascading waterfalls decorate the lush landscapes for a comfortable and pleasurable walking experience. As a historic destination itself, HemisFair Park is home to several attractions that featured in the World’s Fair. The Tower of the Americas is perhaps the area’s most popular and most impressive feature. This 750-foot tower rises high above the park and surrounding city to provide breathtaking views with an added bonus of a fine dining restaurant and 4D theater ride. Skies Over Texas is an interactive multi-sensory theater experience that flies you over the Lone Star State. The park also houses the Institute of Texan Cultures and the Instituto Cultural Mexicano, two heritage museums with history and art exhibits to highlight the respective cultures.
Kids will find HemisFair Park exciting and enjoyable with the newly developed Yanaguana playground, a 7-acre recreational area with everything from an imaginative splash pad to indoor gaming areas. Magik Theatre, located at the park’s entrance, is the area’s premier children’s theater showing educational performances and entertaining plays meant to spark your child’s imagination.
