“Yes, your kids will love it.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2012

For the locals, this is the #1 park to take your kids. It's not a park to go with toddlers. Grade school age is perfect. There is actually a FB page called "I survived Dennis the Menace Park" for all the kids who grew up here.

“A must for the little people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

After the crowds at the Aquarium, head on over to the park and let the kiddos run wild at the is unique playground. So many fun and unusual features (giant roller slide! genuine steam train to climb on! rope bridge and tunnel!), my kids were in heaven. It is quite spread out, so be prepared to keep your eyes peeled to keep track of the littlest ones. A must do!

“real cool playground and park”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012

Thism place was well designed. If you are a kid you will not want to leave here. This place could be a section of Disney. Just go and check it out. Not a ton to do with little ones in Monterrey, but this is a good spot to hang out for a few hours.

“Excellent playground! :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

My husband and I visited Dennis the Menace Park on a Sunday afternoon and it was delightful to watch the children playing to their hearts' content. The grounds were well-kept, play ground equipment too. Definitely a must-see for adults and kids alike. :)

“Daughter loves this park, especially with the huge Train locomotive to play on”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

There is so few parks this creative and exciting to a child. The theme is recognizably one of Dennis the Menace, but what really draws your eyes is the lakes on several sides filled with geese or ducks, and the real train locomotive in the play ground. The kids can climb all over the train locomotive, which is definately unique.

There is also boat rentals from another area that let you rent a paddle boat or canoe and paddle around the lake around the park.
