A city of contrasts
Mexico City is home to Centro Historico, which boasts numerous historic colonial landmarks, and the famous Aztec Templo Mayor. Continue with Chapultepec, which is one of the biggest urban parks in the world, complete with the city zoo, a castle, outdoor recreation opportunities, museums and an amusement park. Coyoacán is famous for counter-culture and art, and go to Condesa and Roma for the city’s trendiest restaurants, bistros, clubs, pubs and shops. Last, but not least, there’s Xochimilco with its waterways and flower gardens dating back to Aztec times.
A peaceful and relaxing park
Parque Hundido is also known as the Luis G. Urbina Park or the Sunken Park. It has become a favourite getaway spot for its relaxing atmosphere. Mostly, people come here to take a break after getting tired from a walk down the busy Insurgentes Sur Avenue.
The classic beauty of Parque Hundido started long ago when several species of trees were planted in the area to create a Christmas Eve forest. In the late 30’s, the government took over and added walkways, gardens and fountains for the people to enjoy. It now is the home of the famous Floral Clock.
You will find 51 reproductions of some of the most excellent pre-Hispanic sculptures in Parque Hundido that are permanently on display. The park stands very close to other attractions making it very convenient to see all the attractions in the area. Admission is free.
