The Parque héroe de la liberación de Vietnam is dedicated to Ho Chi Minh, the Vietnamese defender. It’s a historical and obscure park that has had more names than trees. The street on the eastern side is Plaza Nezahualcóyotl. The park opened though, as the Plaza de la Libertad de los Pueblos (Liberty of the People Plaza) in 2009. The Vietnamese Embassy designed the square and installed the monument in Honor of Ho Chi Minh.
Today the plaza offers some respite from the vendors who frequently line the outside. Commerce and traffic on the facing Avenida 20 de noviembre are constants. The park is, judging by sheer numbers, one of the City’s most visited. Visitors will often take in at least some of the sites around the Pino Suárez shopping center complex and the Metro, if not the San Lucas Market area.
