On June 8, 2016, the Chapultepec Trust opened the newly restored Xochipilli Fountain and Composer’s Passage in Mexico City’s Chapultepec Park, one of the oldest public parks in the world. Located in the park’s second section, the Xochipilli Fountain is an iconic landmark within the city and a symbol of Mexico’s pre-Colombian heritage. The Composer’s Passage is a main pedestrian thoroughfare and proudly celebrates Mexico’s most renowned composers.
The Foundation’s support, through a grant to The Resource Foundation, enabled the Chapultepec Trust to restore these iconic public spaces. Spanning nearly 1,700 acres, Chapultepec Park is visited by more than 4.5 million people each year and holds invaluable cultural, monumental, architectural and environmental heritage.
Through its Urban Parks Program, the Foundation supports the creation of new green space and beautification efforts in major cities around the world. The Tiffany & Co. Foundation is pleased to support Chapultepec Park in successfully advancing urban revitalization in Mexico City.
