Parque Cri Cri, Chapultepec

The Parque Cri Cri has a long history in otherwise entirely natural Section 3 of the Bosque de Chapultepec. The park, or sub-park, as it really is a part of Chapultepec, is the main pedestrian access to the Section 3. The park is most famous for a couple of outdoor amphitheaters, the Foro Alfonso Reyes and the Foro Cri Cri. Wisitors will often follow the trails well into the reserves and forestland. It’s some of the most pristine parkland in Chapultepec.

Entirely remodeled in the summer of 2022, today Cri Cri is especially popular for people with kids and who’d rather avoid some of the weekend crowding in Chapultepec’s Section 1. The children’s area includes a big play area, with slides and open green areas. It’s the only part of Section 3 that is outfitted for casual recreation.

The park is also home to a small pre-school and an important skate park at its northernmost reaches. For international visitors, Parque Cri Cri can seem a like a neighborhood park for the barely populated Ex-Hacienda Belen de las Flores. Since the re0modeling of the park, people from all over the area have stopped in more and more.

The park opens directly onto the Avenida Constituyentes. Visitors to the park will undoubtedly increase with the opening of the Cablebús Line 3. A stop has already been named for the park and is scheduled to open in 2024.
