Some time ago, while on an earlier trip to Mexico City, I wrote that the "Foro" was being restored. On the last several trips, there have been barricades around the construction area. A few days ago I took a stroll through "Parque México", and I was pleased to see that the renovation is finally complete.
This photo shows the graffiti-covered "Foro" before the restoration project.
This is what it looks like now...
The "Foro" included a number of murals by the artist Roberto Montenegro. These had been virtually covered with graffiti. The murals have been recreated and are now protected by sheets of plexiglass.
The pergolas that curve around each side of the "Foro" have also been renovated.
At the entrance to the "Foro" is a fountain, "La Fuente de los Cántaros", which is the symbol of the Condesa neighborhood. This sculpture of a naked women holding jars from which water flowed was also badly deteriorated and covered with graffiti. Although the fountain was not turned on, this too has been cleaned and repaired.
