The Tezozómoc is a recreation centre and functions as an amusement park, since it has corridors, cycle ways, playgrounds and a skating rink. It also has many sports courts, such as basketball, volleyball, tennis courts and others.
In the centre of the park there is an artificial lake and an island, with some little hills which make up a scaled representation of the Valley of Mexico in the 15th century. The 28-hectare park was opened in 1982, based on a design by Mario Schjetnan.
The park is a place of ecological value as its solid land section forms the habitat for squirrels and its lake provides the environment for colonies of many migrant species of birds, such as the white heron, various species of ducks and some varieties of invertebrates. The lake also has many aquatic species, like the carp of Israel and some exotic species introduced by the locals, such as the Japanese turtle.
