Parque España
This lovely park is popular among joggers and pet owners. Now a vibrant and relaxing area with green surroundings, a mini lake, and a charming rustic bridge, it used to be the entry way to Condesa's race tracks. It's close to restaurants along Nuevo León or Tamaulipas avenues, plus the structural  monument of Lázaro Cárdenas' is welcoming and beautiful.
