“The High Line has transformed a part of Manhattan’s Lower East Side from a decaying industrial district into a dynamic, beloved neighborhood. On my last visit to San Antonio, I was able to see the plans and progress at Hemisfair which reminded me of our early efforts to make the High Line a reality. Hemisfair is an incredibly ambitious project, but it’s also entirely attainable. San Antonio is my home, and I believe Hemisfair will have a profound positive effect on the city. I know from my experience on the High Line that it is critically important that the entire community join me in supporting and sustaining this transformational project.” – Robert Hammond, co-founder and executive director of Friends of the High Line
“I am so excited about the redevelopment of Hemisfair. It is truly something other cities only dream of doing. With the help of the Conservancy, the project is becoming a reality for San Antonio.” – Chef Johnny Hernandez
“Expanding and improving our green space in Downtown is going to enhance so many aspects of the downtown experience. I am proud to support this effort to bring a world-class green space to our city — something that all great cities need.” – Katie Reynolds, Board Secretary
“Even though we live 30 miles away from Hemisfair, we are very excited for the expansion of the park to enjoy even more fun family getaways in the downtown area. After seeing the plans and walking the area, the park already has a nostalgic feel for us, bringing back wonderful memories and experiences of enjoying gorgeous public parks in other well-known cities, both in the states and internationally. This will be an amazing place for ALL to enjoy, adding more pride within the city, and leaving a lasting impression for all.” – John and Kathryn Keeton
