The Bosque de Chapultepec, or Chapultepec Forest, is one of Mexico City's favorite attractions. Chapultepec is one of the biggest parks in the entire Western Hemisphere, covering 1,695 acres (686 hectares). The area in which the park site has evidence of being inhabited since Aztec times, when rulers used it as a royal retreat of sorts. During Mexico's colonial period, a castle was constructed in the park to be the official residence of the leaders of Mexico for some time. Today, many cultural events take place here and it is also home to one of the most important zoos in the Americas. It is an extremely popular place for locals and tourists to visit to enjoy the outdoors and natural beauty.
