If you didnt have time to go in the park, dont forget to take pictures with it at the path walk down to the Expocity while you will find the Tower of the Sun close to you on your left.

The Tower of the sun is the symbol of the Expo 70 Commemorative. It's strange to define and it is not well conserved. It's not a worth touristic point to go.
