The place has some monuments that are quite intersting like the hemiciclo a Juarez and in one corner the Palace of bellas artes. It is a nice park. more »
It is relaxing and also historical. Now there are more policemen and guards all over the place. Also less ambulant sellers that's awesome. There is more space and green areas to relax or bike to do activities.
