Mexico City: 43 Times the Size of Central Park
Construction began in August on the Texcoco Lake Ecological Park, 35,000 acres of dried lake bed slated to become the biggest urban park in the world. Around 43 times the size of Central Park and encompassing more than a tenth of Mexico City’s metropolitan area, the new park is designed to become a vital component of the city’s infrastructure, providing not only recreation spaces but storm-water catchment, water-cleaning wetlands, community gardens, and a variety of renewable energy installations.
