This is a relatively new park that was built on an area that was cleared and the people moved to newer neighborhoods. Apparently this had been a high crime area that was very hard to control and moving the families and tearing down the "slum" solved the problem. There is a bandstand that is shaped like a pigeon coop, a statue of Anthony Quinn (a native son of Chihuahua) doing his famous "Zorba the Greek" dance and a statue of a bull that commemorates the cattle industry in Chihuahua.

Address: Just north of central storico
Directions: On a hill just north of the central storico - pretty hard to miss Anthony dancing.

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
