Located right next to the National Museum of Mexican Art, the park features a field house with a gymnastics center, indoor swimming pool, computer lab. The nearly 18 acres of space include tennis courts, basketball courts, baseball fields, athletic fields for football or soccer, a playground and community garden. Envisioned by renowned landscape designer Jens Jensen and commissioned in 1912, the space aimed to create an outdoor space and breath of fresh air in the overcrowded and industrialized lower west side.
