Parque Tabasco La Champa 2.

In fact, the Park Tabasco or Tomas Garrido Canabal is much more that a park. Nailed city in the heat of, to the border of the Lagoon of the Illusions, between the Stroll Tabasco and boulevard Adolph Ruiz Cortines, reunites two museums, a zoological one, sources, centers of consultation, infantile places of spectacles, games, assembly halls and much more. Few strolls on foot are so disfrutables in Villahermosa as the one that can be done here, any day in the evening.


The main reason for which the park is so pleasant, that is originated in was designed and conceived to be a recreation place, in all its extension.

Founded on 1930 with the name from Tabasco Park to initiative of lawyer Tomás Garrido Canabal, originally it was made to lodge the cattle and commercial fair that organizes every year. Along with the kioscos destined to each municipality rose other buildings around the Lagoon of the Illusions: the Agora, the Theater outdoors and the great Hall Conventions.

In 1982 the fair was changed to the park Hits It, with which the Tabasco park, that already took the name of Tomás Garrido Canabal, was redesigned to be inaugurated in 1985 and gave like result the ample space of recreation, free of visual and auditory contamination which now they enjoy the tabasqueños.

In the place it is possible to be rowed, to rest, to read, to make sport, to play... The escultóricos sets that adorn the ways remember the history of Tabasco and in general, the harmony of the atmosphere favors the rest.

In the center it is the Viewpoint of the Aguilas, to 50 ms of height and which it is worth the trouble to raise to have a magnificent Vista of all the park, the Lagoon of the Illusions and the city.

Among other areas of cultural and social diffusion there are a great hall, the Agora, a forum outdoors and an annexed hall, used for conventions and congresses, given the advantages of the isolation and the paradisíaco atmosphere that the place surrounds. Although they are not indeed inserted, on such lands are the park, zoological museum and of the Sale and the Museum of Natural History.
