Parque México


The ideal place to start your Condesa explorations is at its heart in the buzzing greenery of Parque México, attracting professional dog walkers, dancers practicing their moves, lovers whispering on the benches, and families in the children's play area.

The oval shape reflects its earlier use as a horse-racing track. Two blocks northwest is Parque España, which has another kid zone.
