Great place to walk, to run if you like it, to sightsee. It has an ice skating place, restaurant and museums

The Christmas light show "Luztopia" is wondrous. There are dazzling light displays, such as the white castle, and street performers, and vendors (fresh churros!), as well as a ferry ride. Entrance is free. This is must-see in Monterrey at Christmas time.

pretty well maintained gardens and the small streets inside very clea, the playgrounds are good and they also rent bikes, the churros and papitas con crema were not so good but eatable bring comfy shoes.

Found this to be over rated- May be because there are no maps, directions in English, details of where one is what I can do, I did not know where to go. I did visit the Horno3 and they have done a great job of converting a steel smelter into a nice museum. Fortunately they had the tour brochure in English and I could do this without much help. All exhibits had English translation and it helped. A good 2-3 hours in understanding how steel is made and how this monster of a smelter was constructed. The sound and light show ( I missed one show as announcements are in Spanish only).

Although this is a great museum, I did not know what else was there and could not find more help. I took a taxi back to my hotel.

What a great place, a job well done.
I always admire projects consisting of giving a new life to industrial landscape. Parque Fundidora is a great example of what can be done to honor the industry of the town. The preservation of buildings and information given is amazing, it is very green and well taken care of and clean, you can tell people like it and take care of it.
Take the boat Paseo Santa Lucia, it is a nice way to go to the park from the city center (by the Museo de Historia)...

Bring comfortable shoes and def advice you to go EARLY on the weekends (full of people late in the day, and you don't get that "peaceful walk in the park") and most preferably, on cloudy days. Bring cash to rent a bike to stroll around, because the park is huge! Also bring a jacket during fall/winter season, at night it gets chilly. There are usually art exhibitions, so check those around!

Just like any other park everywhere else. I didn't see anything special about fundidora, I rented a bike for 40 pesos and it was for an hour ride. Did a couple of laps around the park and called it a day. Everything is hella expensive make sure to bring your own water

During my trip to Monterrey I spent the night in Holiday Inn Parque Fundidora, I decided to walk thru the park and it is really a big an interesting place. It was all green with many animals. They have museums and take the elevator to visit the chimneys and enjoy the view of the city in the heights. Very interesting the foundry history.

Boats take off from the Museo de Historia every 30 minutes and make their way to Parque Fundidora. You can make the walk as well which is a little over 2 kms. The Santa Lucia Riverwalk boat ride includes a guided tour with explanations as well as a few good one-liners. Tickets are round trip so that when you arrive at the park you can stay all day and return to the downtown area when ready.

Parque Fundidora always has events taking place and it's best to check the calendar of events online. The park, once a foundry with a very interesting history, is now a park which has helped to clean the city air. Walking paths and bike rentals make for a fun day as well as kiosks for some delicious Regio/Norteño food.

The Lingote restaurant serves a great menu located in Horno 3. An interactive museum on the grounds as well as original pieces of the foundry that have now blended well with the park and the park's theme makes for a great family outing.

On weekends and evenings, there are small stages along the riverwalk and in the park where you might catch a folkloric dance show, musicians playing, or a mime.

The park is full of tourists in the summer looking to escape the heat and it's convenient to hotels; Holiday Inn and the Hotel Antares. Restaurants are within walking distance of the park.

Lovely view from the top and the tour inside de Fundidora museum was very interesting. The park itself is a lovely place to go for a walk. You can stay there for hours.
