The Largest City Park in All of Latin America: Parque de Chapultepec
We’re sure you’ve heard of Central Park in New York City, granted that it’s one of the most famous city parks in the world. A place you may not have heard of however, is Parque de Chapultepec in Mexico City, a park that is, believe it or not, quite a bit bigger than Central Park.
One visit to Chapultepec Park is a sure way to fall in love with Mexico City itself. Pristine walkways lined with various shades of green trees lead you through over 1,695 acres of forest right in the middle of one of the largest cities in the world.
Not only is the park a forest, it also surrounds a lake that is found right in the center. Here you can rent little boats or kayaks and spend a few hours on the water in this urban Mexican oasis. After hanging out on the water, grab a snack from one of the many Mexican street food venders, and head over to catch a life music or comedy performance or to catch a sight of some rare animals at the Chapultepec zoo.
If you’re a fan of museums, you’ll love the park because it is home to seven different museums – more than you can ever get through in one day.
Visiting with children? Head on down to the skate park or to one of the wide open grassy spaces to kick a soccer ball around, bring a slackline and practice your balance, or simply bring a picnic basket and a blanket to spend a day with the family in the serenity of this extraordinary city park.
Mexico City is a fascinating city to visit, but it’s an even more fascinating city to live it. There are so many things to experience in the spectacular capital of Mexico that you’ll never run out of activities.
