Alameda Oriente

Open - Limited Services / Capacity

The Alameda Oriente is an ecological park with nine separate areas for activities and recreation. At ​​82.9 hectares, the environment is surrounded by trees and hedges and contains a nursery and an artificial lake.

An eastern lawn had been part of the Xochiaca Lagoon and was used for many years to receive airport runoff. This was restored as part of the Xochiaca Project and came to be called the “Alameda Oriente.” In August of 1987, the Bordo Xochiaca site was officially closed as a landfill. And today, in something of a successful tribute to ecological efforts overall, the park is home to:

  • Acacia
  • Eucalyptus
  • Casuarina
  • Palm tree
  • Poplar
  • Ash 
  • Italian cypress
  • Cedar Limn
