As I said, I'm happy they're making the civic park in downtown San Antonio. But it won't be anywhere near the size and magnitude of Millennium Park.

Compare the two (and remember there will be buildings on the San Antonio land):

San Antonio:

Chicago:

addendum: This has nothing to do with Chicago being a bigger city. I'm only comparing the size of the parks.

Even lake shore east is better. The views from swisshotel are beautiful!
