  • Description

    Located in a dense populated working-class district of Mexico City. At the heart of the park, there is a lagoon that recreates the contours of the extensive system of lakes that once filled the Valley of Mexico; it is surrounded by low hills echoing the topography of the region. It is built on a reclaimed industrial site; the mounds were made of earth from subway excavations, and recycled water – treated sewage from a nearby housing project – is used for the lake and for irrigation.
