In the times of Nezahualcóyotl, the Chapultepec forest housed the first Botanical Garden of the country, forming through collections of exotic plants that were brought from other states of the Republic.
It was inaugurated in 2006, built in a space of 5.3 hectares and offers visitors a magnificent landscape and a valuable collection of native and introduced plants. It also has an Orchid.
Since 2016, the botanical garden has been rehabilitated by Plantando con Causa A.C. With the help of landscapers, botanists, horticulturists and biologists, it has restored 22 spaces that can be visited from Tuesday to Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The garden counts since 2017 more than 300 varieties of plants, distributed as follows: plants for pollinators, edible plants, succulents, wetland plants, 14 species of wild dahlias, agaves, cacti and arboretum, among others.
