One unique feature of the site was that it is located adjacent to highway I37/281. In the late 60’s highway I37/281 was still under construction and had yet to be completed near the fair site (this is where both sections, one from the north and one from the south were to meet), this provided HemisFair planners with a large cleared area for parking. The lot covered approximately 40 acres, accommodate 4,000 vehicles and stretched 1 mile long at it widest point.
