Metropolitan Ecological Park

León

One of León natural lungs is the Parque Ecológico Metropolitano (Metropolitan Ecological Park), a protected natural area over 337 hectares that serves to give its residents a quiet respite. If you’re a sportsman at heart, you can make a run around the dam or enjoy the bike lane, both about seven kilometers long.

The Palote Dam is one of the park's main attractions—you can navigate on its waters either by renting a boat or rowing a kayak. You’ll see the vestiges of the dam's reservoir, home to more than 204 species of birds.

Children will have fun like big ones in the specially designed for them Ciudad Infantil (Children's City). Besides, families can end their park visit by getting on the tire train.

Once a year, at the end of November, the Metropolitan Park is the venue for the International Balloon Festival, one of the world’s largest and most important. The first FIG edition was held in December 2002, gathering 25 balloons simultaneously in the air. Now there are hundreds.
