The Olmec heads and other carvings are very impressive. The free wandering lemurs were hysterical! The other animals were also very interesting.

It was amazing to see these huge heads. The park is very well maintained and the walkways were easy to view the different antique structures.

The Olmecs are believed to be the mother culture of later Mesoamerican civilizations and proceeded them by thousands of years. They are renowned for their numerous carved stelae and sculptures. The artifacts in this lovely park have been brought here from other Olmec archeological sites. Most notable are the numerous sculptured heads, many quite large.The walk through the park is easy and interesting. There are several animal enclosures with a black cougar, monkeys and an aged coyote.
Enjoy the park and don't forget the insect repellent. There are mosquitos here.

This park shows artifacts from the Olmecs, the first civilisation in America. There are many items shown and the most impressive are the colossal heads. There are 17 in all but only 4 originate from La Venta For any lover of archeology, this is a must see.

Have you ever wondered who the Olmec were? This is the place to find out. We loved our visit to this Park to see the replicas of the La Venta digs.

I came here just to see the giant stone Olmec heads. I'd known about them and was somewhat familiar with Olmec culture. I enjoyed the scenery in walking around the grounds, except for the animals. A pathetic excuse for a zoo or animal enclosures. Unless you're into the Olmecs, I don't recommend this place.

This “Park “ reminds me of the Bronx Zoo in the 1960’s . The animals are confined in small unnatural environments. There was little enrichment that I could see . The reptiles especially the snakes are in tiny enclosures . I could go on and on about the despicable condition of these poor animals . I would not advise ANYONE who has the slightest care of animals not to go the this place of horror for these animals . I see so many good reviews for this place and is why we went . If you go and enjoy it , you have empathy . The garden area surround the ZOO is not impressive either . If found it all very sad and infuriating.

It is a park where you can take a walking and outdoor tour of the flora and fauna of Tabasco along with knowing some of the pieces of pre-Hispanic cultures that had their settlement on this land. It is a beautiful combination of present with past. Some aspects to improve is your maintenance of the park and put some activities.

This park is really the only reason to go to Villahermosa, however you are there La Venta is great. The park has a trail which follow and when I was there, there were security guards stationed at the heads monitoring people. Forget the zoo it is too sad!
A great collection of artefacts.
