The Parque Líbano is a green area of some 5.5 hectares. It’s officially part of Section One of Chapultepec Park. But as it’s north of Paseo de la Reforma, even long time residents of Mexico City aren’t totally sure who looks after it.
The park is wedged between Reforma and the western section of Campos Elíseos, an important stretch of many foreign embassies. There are some private homes and other businesses in this part of Polanco, too. Among the most important of embassies, though, is that of the Lebanon. This one lends its name to the entire park. It’s more formal name is the Jardín de la República del Líbano.
The park is home to two important monuments.
The Parque Líbano was reseeded with grass in recent years. All the pavements and lighting were replaced at the same time. And today, it’s more than just a stretch of trees, but a popular green area and natural reserve.
