The Source: An Update From Hemisfair Park

Hemisfair

The redevelopment of Hemisfair park continues under the watchful eye of the city and its critics. 
While there is still a lot of work to be done before the civic park opens in 2018, people are coming to experience the Yanaguana gardens playground  and more. According to the Hemisfair Park Area Redevelopment Corporation, 400,000 people have visited it since September of last year.

Yanaguana was just stage one of the three stage plan for the park - coming next will be a high rise apartment and maybe a ballpark for a baseball team.
 

Are you excited about what's happening at Hemisfair? What does it mean to "Get it Right" in the historic space?
