The Niños Heroes Station (Spanish: Estación Niños Heroes) is a station on Line 2 of the Monterrey Metro. It is located in the intersection of Alfonso Reyes and City of Los Angeles Avenues.

This station is next to the Niños Heroes Park (from which the station takes its name), it's also near the Raúl Rangel Frías Library of the University of Nuevo León,[2] the Nuevo León Cycling track,[3] and the Estadio de Béisbol Monterrey.[4][5] It is accessible for people with disabilities.

This station's logo represents a stylized headshot of a "Niño Hero" (one of the boy heroes that died defending the country).

This station was inaugurated on October 31, 2007 as part of the first stage of the Line 2 expansion (along with Regina Station and Universidad).[1]
