Outdoor Activities

The Bosque de Chapultepec, or Chapultepec Forest, is one of Mexico City's favorite attractions. Chapultepec is one of the biggest parks in the entire Western Hemisphere, covering 1,695 acres (686 hectares). The area in which the park site has evidence of being inhabited since Aztec times when rulers used it as a royal retreat of sorts. During Mexico's colonial period, the magnificent Chapultepec Castle was constructed in the park which served as the official residence of the leaders of Mexico for several decades. Apart from the castle, the Monument to the Ninos Heroes, the Carcamo, the Ttaloc's fountain and the baths of Moctezuma are some of the park's other attractions. Cultural events are held here on regular occasions which is when the park witnesses its most profitable turnouts.
