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.

This is where the 1968 World's Fair was held, and it's really pretty cool. There are several old homes, being restored, and just a nice place to go.

This is a beautiful, well-maintained park, close to the Convention Center and the Alamodome. We enjoyed all of the different fountains, and had a very pleasant stroll. I understand that the children's playground here is exceptional, but we had no reason to check it out.
