Largest City Park in Latin America
Bosque de Chapultepec is Mexico’s largest city park located in the heart of the city. It is one of the city’s most popular attractions and considered to be the “lungs of the city.” This natural forest reserve measures about 686 hectares and is an important ecological space inside the city.
The Bosque de Chapultepec used to be the vacationing estate of the ancient Aztec nobility and later on became the site of the official residence of the Mexican heads of state. The forest contains two large lakes, plenty of trees, ruins, brooks, marble water fountains, a music garden, a large zoo, theatre for children, a fabulous castle, and a lakeside art gallery.
The Bosque de Chapultepec gets plenty of visitors after office hours and during weekends. If you do not want to enjoy this place with a crowd, it is best to visit during weekdays and between 9AM and 5PM.
