Parque de los Venados is a station on Line 12 of the Mexico City Metro.[1][2] The station is located between Zapata and Eje Central. It was opened on 30 October 2012 as a part of the first stretch of Line 12 between Mixcoac and Tláhuac.[1]

During the line's construction, the remains of people believed to be of the Aztecs were found at the station site.[3]

The station is located south of the city center, at the intersection between Eje 7 Sur Municipio Libre and Calle Uxmal. It is built underground.

The name originates from a nearby park, commonly known as "Parque de los Venados" (Los Venados Park) and which originally was named "Parque Francisco Villa."
