High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Parque Mexico
(English: Mexico Park, also known as the Parque San Martin, is a
large urban park located in Colonia Hipodromo in the La Condesa
area of Mexico City. It is recognized by its Art Deco architecture
and decor as well as being one of the larger green areas in the
city. The park was built in the 1920s, when its surrounding
neighborhood of Colonia Hipodromo was being established. It is the
former site of a horse race track on a hacienda that belonged to
the Countess of Miravalle. When this part of the hacienda was being
partitioned and redeveloped into a housing area, environmental laws
at the time did not permit housing on the former track. Instead it
was turned into the current park. Today, Parque Mexico is not only
the center of Colonia Hipodromo, it is also the center of the
entire La Condesa section of the city.
