This park encompasses many attractions that are essential to a visit to Mexico City which is why it gets the excellent rating. The palace and anthropological museum are world class, must sees. Some of the attractions have fees, and each is separate. Bring your walking shoes as the park is large and attractions spread out. Check out the Wikipedia article... More

Wonderful park which is well worth a visit if you'd like a break from the hectic city. The castle and zoo are both within the park grounds.

We were staying in the Reforma District and had friends staying in Polanco so we walked through this park nearly every day of our trip, every day we took a different route and we're amazed at the loveliness of the trails in the off-the-beaten-path areas, the liveliness of the main passage through the park, and the variety of things you...

You want to be in the middle of the local people? Go to this nice park with wonderful old trees and nice flower-beds and lots of attractions for kids and parents. Nice food, entertainment articles and smaller shows are all over the place. It is crowded but this will give you a flavor of the local life style.

This is the central park in Mexico City. We loved the Castle and walking around the park, especially the succulent gardens. Great place to pack a picnic and spend the day.

This is a great place to go and spend the day. There is a free zoo, several museums, food stalls, folk dancers, and more food galore. Be prepared for some surprises as well. Sunday afternoon is the most crowded and weekday early to mid-morning is least crowded. Be sure to take small peso coins as it costs to use the... More

For an urban park, it is very good. However, it can get crowded on the weekends. I saw one of the two lakes and it was...green. Also, there's some litter around so they can definitely do a better job with cleaning it.

This park is divided into three sections, the last reserved for allowing nature to take its course. It is the only part I have not visited. I absolutely love urban parks, especially in Latin America where families pour out into them on the weekends especially Sundays. Chapultepec provides so many attractions and activities that it would be impossible to enjoy... More
