San Antonio’s Tower of the Americas Renovation: Unveiling New Sports Court Pavilion with Green Space Expansion

Hemisfair requests approval for design of sports pavilion near Tower of the Americas

San Antonio’s Tower of the Americas is set to receive a major renovation, with a new design plan being reviewed for its grounds. The project, led by Hemisfair, proposes to replace the current pond at the base of the structure with a “Sports Court” pavilion.

Hemisfair has received philanthropic support to fund the construction of the pavilion, which aligns with public feedback received last year that highlighted the need for public recreation spaces. The first phase of Civic Park, unveiled by Hemisfair last year, added green space to the grounds west of the tower.

Renderings of the project have not yet been made available, but the pavilion will feature a concrete slab mostly painted for a basketball court. It will also have a 28-foot oval roof to cover the pavilion with overhang for onlookers. The space will be available for community events and rental opportunities.
