SLIDESHOW: Hemisfair restoration

The restoration efforts of Hemisfair Park came closer to fruition March 23 when two new designated park streets opened to the public.

Hemisfair Boulevard and East Nueva Streets are two low-speed roads open for foot and bike traffic. In 2018, the street will open up for vehicles. The grand plan is to connect the park to nearby neighborhoods and other parks, as in the past.  The next segment of Hemisfair is anticipated to be completed in late 2018 or early 2019.
