Vickrey & Associates, Inc. and Seattle-based landscape architect Gustafson Guthrie Nichol (GGN) were recently selected to design Hemisfair’s civic park in San Antonio, Texas. The 8+ acre park will be designed as a beautiful urban green space offering enriching and captivating experiences that strengthen the downtown community. It will be part of a series of three parks on the Hemisfair site, all of which will be embraced by a vibrant and walkable district. Features in the park shall include a great lawn area, zocalo (public square) shallow water feature, amphitheater and small courtyards. The civic park at Hemisfair is scheduled to open to the public in 2018 to celebrate San Antonio’s Tricentennial and the 50th Anniversary of the World’s Fair. Vickrey is part of the civil team on the project.
