Parque de la Alemán

Parque de la Alemán is located in the heart of Colonia Miguel Alemán, in front of the church El Sagrado Corazón de Jesús (the name of the church means "The Sacred Heart of Jesus" and is a Catholic devotion to the heart of Jesus Christ as a symbol of divine love.).

Mercado Miguel Alemán is located one block east of Parque de la Alemán. It is a smaller local farmers market where you will find for example fresh fruit, vegetables, meat or cheese.

History of the park

The name of the park, which is located a few blocks northeast of the spectacular Gran Parque La Plancha, comes from Miguel Alemán Valdez, a former president of México.

However, the monument in the park was not erected in honor of Miguel Alemán, but for Juan Crisóstomo Cano y Cano, a Mexican engineer and lieutenant colonel who died in the Battle of Chapultepec in 1847.

The Miguel Alemán district was built in the middle of the 20th century on the site of the former Hacienda Petcanché. Parque de la Alemán was built a few years later in the 1960s and extends over a block.

Features of the park

Parque de la Alemán includes

  • an skating rink,

  • a children's playground,

  • a fountain,

  • a funfair with a few rides and

  • a stage for cultural events.

There are also large lawns with shady trees and a few benches. Young children can also play with some concrete animals such as chimpanzees, giraffes, elephants and lions.

The park is accordingly very popular with families, the children can run around in the park, ride the merry-go-round, and there are always food stalls with marquesitas, esquites or ice cream.

The park is always very busy and also popular with joggers, people walking their dogs, fitness classes or skaters. Events are often held in the park, especially at weekends.
