General informationEdit

The station logo depicts the silhouette of a plant, and the metro station is named after the nearby Viveros de Coyoacán arboretum and nursery (parts of which are a publicly accessible park and a popular area for recreation), founded by engineer Miguel Ángel de Quevedo in the former ranch of Panzacola.[2] The station opened on 30 August 1983.[4]

Metro Viveros / Derechos Humanos serves the Colonia Barrio de Santa Catarina, Florida, and Axotla neighbourhoods, and is mainly used to link with the bus lines on Avenida Universidad.[2]

Inside the station is a mural by artist Jason Schell entitled A Sunday Afternoon Under Mexico City (Una Tarde Dominical Bajo la Ciudad de Mexico).
