The Sights and Sounds of Bosque de Chapultepec in Mexico City

Bosque de Chapultepec (Chapultepec Park) is the largest park in Mexico City. According to Wikipedia, it is one of the largest city parks in the Western Hemisphere. Basically, it rivals that of Central Park because it’s so huge and there is so much to do. Be aware that Chapultepec Park (sometimes referred to as Chapultepec forest) is closed on Mondays.
