The Santa Juanita Park is a complex of parks and recreation areas all newly rehabbed in 2020. The complex includes, most prominently, the Plaza Cívica y Recreativa “Santa Juanita.” The Parque 20 de noviembre, and the Parque Francisco Javier Mujica are contiguous. It’s all situated surrounding the Mercado Santa Juanita which was also dramatically remodeled in 2021. The giant Santa Juanita church complex which lends its name to the area is just to the southeast of the park and market area.
The 2020 remodeling gave the Santa Juanita park a new zip line, a dog run area, free WiFi access for schools kids, and a train, kids’ games, outdoor gym, synthetic grass court, a skatepark, a shaded area for cultural and recreational activities, picnic tables, and a virtual library. The park is a main center of cultural and civic life for surrounding neighborhoods, among them Felipe Ángeles, Revolución, and Venustiano Carranza, among others.
