Long the heart of Colonia Condesa (even during the dark days following Mexico City’s devastating 1985 earthquake), today’s Parque México is an urban zenith. Well-manicured with ample seating and a recently refurbished pavilion that plays host to groovy neighborhood events plus perennial skateboarders, the park’s venerable trees provide shade to the area’s easy-on-the-eyes crowd of joggers, dog-walkers, cute old folks and amorous teens. Along the garden’s perimeter, some of the city’s smartest apartment houses (often in flawless art deco style) share space with cool cafés, kicky boutiques, and crowded restaurants. Few city pleasures surpass Parque México’s people- (and pooch-) watching, over coffee or cocktails, as golden sunlight streams through branches onto lively, see-and-be-see sidewalk venues.
