  • One of the largest urban parks in the world with a castle, lakes, a zoo, museums, monuments, etc. High atop the Castillo de Chapultepec is one of the best views ever.  more »
  • This beautiful park is a must see in MC. We only had one day to visit it. Be sure to see the Chapultepec Castle and have a late lunch and a glass of wine on the lake at the Bistró Chapultepec...  more »
  • The Paseo de la Reforma runs pass this park and at one point even cuts thru a portion of it. The museums are here and it is valued as a green space.. It is very visited and an important part of this....  more »

  • A must see if you're visiting Mexico! There are museums, a castle, markets, food stalls, squirrels and lots of beautiful water fountains and peaceful areas. There's also a lake where you can paddle boat, which we did but it was quite hard to paddle and exhausted us quickly. My favourite place in Mexico City!
  • This is a must visit. Mexico City's Central Park. The forest is packed with things to do from traditional street food vendors to fine dining. There's a zoo, a botanical garden, and lakes. There are several museums including two former presidential residencies, one of them is the White House equivalent and the other is a castle! There's also a kid's science museum and the anthropology and history museum where you can see the original Aztec calendar. There's also an amusement park.
  • Great views and very photogenic. The castle has an outstanding view of the city and amazing features inside. Multiple gardens makes for a very relaxing view.
  • You better get in there with plenty of time. Enormous wood area, several fun destinations. Even though it is a wood, signals are all over the place and are easy to read. No one gets lost. Squirrels everywhere
  • This park has so much to do. I was here with my kids and we did the zoo (free) and a bunch of playgrounds including zip lining. They have peddle boats in the lake and there is a ton to do here....easily 4/6 hours can be spent here. Loved it...plus on Sunday they have tons of street performers and an open air market.
