Alameda Central is a nice park. I've been there to run and the experience was very nice. The place is not huge but big enough and safe.

The Alameda Central has os much to offer. Wonderful Avenues for strolls. A vibrant craft market. Kids on skate boards and couples dancing in pop-up venues. But when the Jacarandas bloom in March, the park is at its best. An interesting marriage of purple blossoms and white marble.

This is an exquisite park that you won't miss if you are touring the historic district. There was a lot of activity there on a Saturday. People hanging out and just being around. There are lots of beautiful outdoor sculptures including one of Neptune, I believe.

I read this space has been recently redeveloped and it seems they have done a very good job. The lovely trees and plants lining the paths are very well looked after and the fountains are fun, attracting both children and grown ups. When we were there it was not particularly hot but I can imagine that in the summer it... More

A grand place for a photo opp near the Palacio De Bellas Artes. There were police present when we were there to stop folks from climbing.

No need to visit Alameda Park unless you are walking from Belles Artes to Fonart to buy souvenirs at a fair price. When we walked through it on a Monday, there was a drunk guy who kept veering towards us. This is a big public park with benches that if needed, can take a few minutes to rest. No other... More

After an extensive upgrade in 2010 Parque Alameda has become a lovely spot to relax in the middle of a chaotic city. Well-located near many of the popular spots in Centro Historico, this lovely park offers numerous fountains with light diplays after dark. i often pick up a few bocadillos at the Ideal bakery nearby and enjoy a quick lunch...

Neighbourhood Profile
Alameda
This beautiful park was once the playground for the wealthiest families in the colonial era, and is now the perfect place where locals and visitors can spend a sunny weekend afternoon to relax or shop for souvenirs at the market. Kids can run around or grab a bite of cotton candy while teens and adults wander around admiring the charming gardens and the sculptures that adorn it. Once the heat rises, it may be time to visit one of the many cozy restaurants or cafés with its characteristic art nouveau facades to cool down and call it a day.
