It's a gorgeous park. In April, the most striking things are the Jacarandas that are immense and vibrantly in purple bloom. It's worth the walk up the hill just to see these giant trees. Everything else is great too.

Wonderful park with nice treelined paths. Free entrance. Clean and cool in the heat of the day. Lots of locals having picnics. Good food at the outdoor restraunts near the zoo & castle.

Beautiful! A lot of green, so huge, with many places and monuments to see. Perfect gardens, clean and walk on it is completely peaceful. You need to go to the zoo, Museo de Antropologia and Castillo de Chapultepec!

A huge park in central Mexico City, Chapultepec is very widely visited by Mexicans. It has a lake where pedal-boats can be rented, outside shows enjoyed, long walkways to walk along, as well as tons of small vendors aligned along some of the walkways, selling mostly food, souvenirs and trinkets.

Just as a cultural experience, nothing spectacular, but it's something to walk through the park and end up at the castle .

Chapultepec is a wonderful park located right in the middle of Mexico City. It is a place to people watch as families head here on weekends to play and picnic and get away from the confusion of the big city. You can visit the Zoo, fantastic museums, the famous castle all for free. When staying in the city, be sure... More

I've been to Mexico City the last 2 Xmases and visited the Zoo, Castle, boating lake and Park. Zoo is a much better attraction than London Zoo and is free. Yes thats correct free and is 10 times better than london Zoo which has far less animals and costs around £25 to enter. The castle is impressive and the park... More

If just for the museums Chalpultepec would be worth it (Antropología, Castle (Natural History), the Zoo, Rufino Tamayo (Modern Art) and more). The park itself is expansive and especially lively. A must visit if you are in Mexico City!

I've been told to avoid Chapultepec Park on the weekend but I disagree, ss seeing the residents of the D.F. enjoying their fine park is its # 1 attraction to me. If there on a Sunday, the museums will be crowded as they are free to Mexican citizens on Sundays. If you go on a Monday, take a book!
