The schematic design for Hemisfair Park's "Play Escape" was unveiled Wednesday at a public meeting.
Aside from a playground that will be built, the seven acre area will include more than 100 new apartment units, possible underground parking, and restaurants and shops in the existing historic structures.
Some people are convinced the Play Escape will bring San Antonians to Downtown again.
The plan is to start Phase 1 next May with a finish date of Spring 2015. The work is funded by the 2012-2017 bond program.
