In 2009, the San Antonio City Council established the Hemisfair Park Area Redevelopment Corporation (HPARC), a local government organization appointed to manage and revitalize the Hemisfair area.
HPARC is a 501(c)3 nonprofit local government corporation that was founded on seven principles that effectively guide all decisions in the redevelopment process of Hemisfair; connectivity, development, green space, balance, preservation, sustainability, and leadership.
The overall mission of HPARC is to expand the existing park, and improve its quality by merging the concept of preservation and growth. HPARC hopes to create a spectacular public space at the heart of San Antonio, complete with plazas, courtyards, green space, art and cultural amenities, residences, and local businesses. The plan for Hemisfair will mature the city center asset into a collective space, bursting with visitors, excitement, and functionality.
