A great park, follow the water or take the boat. Hire a bike, walk or run. Exercise on the fixed equipment. Stop for a snack, drink or meal. A great, relaxing venue.

I have been here many times. I think it is wonderful that something as wonderful as this park could come from such failure. This park is very large and being at one end of the river ride you need to decide which end of the boat ride you want to start at. I suggest you park in Sesame Street parking... More

We went to this park with our bycicles and we had hours of fun. There are paved roads where you can drive or walk, spaces to sit on the grass or benches. There is a lot of open space, be sure to take you sunscreen and/or cap to protect from the sun. There is only a few places to buy... More

If you visit Monterrey for business, do not stay at your hotel, grab a taxi and get here, very nice place to walk, roller skate or simply enjoy an ice cream, very safe and friendly people, besides that it is so big that even if crowded it feels empty at all times. Gets hot in the summer so use sun... More

Whether you enjoy running in the track, watching art films, or fancy dining, Fundidora is the place to go. There is always something going on, ranging activities for families, children, couples or senior citizens. Best of all, most events are free of charge.

The park is on what used to be La Fundidora (smelting). It has a point of the Santa Lucia boat ride, nice way to arrive from La Macro Plaza. It has bicycle, running roads, exercise areas... Nice place for a leisure stroll, the views include some of the fundidora hornos (furnaces), it has views to the cerros (mountains) that surround... More

This park is built on what used to be one of the largest steel mills in Mexico. It was shot down after protracted labour conflict in the 1970s and eventually taken over by the government and turned into a park and museum. The museum part is so-so but the park can be interesting for families with children. The museum seemed... More
