Hemisfair Park Tips (17)

Hermann Schultze House

The Hermann Schultze House was built in 1880 but was razed in 1967 and rebuilt for HemisFair in 1968. The original decorative metal trim is still intact and looks kinda neat.

Fountains of Hemisfair park

Besides the museums and the tower, a main attraction of the park are the fountains which are a great way to escape the oppressive heat that surrounds the city most of the year.
