Chapultepec Park (Aztec word for ‘Hill of Grasshoppers’) is one of the largest city parks in the world. The park covers a whopping  7 sq. km (686 hectares) and has several walking paths, ponds, lakes as well as several monuments and museums, including the Museum of Anthropology and the Rufino Tamayo Museum.  Chapultepec served as a sanctuary for nomadic Aztecs before being turned into a swanky summer residence for the noble class. Today, it remains an abode of Mexico’s rich and influential, including the current presidential residence, Los Pinos, and a former imperial palace, the Castillo de Chapultepec.
