A very nice, well kept up little park. Not real big so it does not take too much time but is worth it. Went there in the am b4 going to see the big Olmec heads.

A lush and gorgeous park in central Xalapa. Beautiful flora and fauna, ponds, waterfalls, sculptures, walking trails. It’s not huge but it is a good way to spend an hour as a respite from the hustle and bustle of the city center.

Great little park with tons of turtles. Easy walk but some elevation changes can be challenging. Great resto nearby and plenty to see into area

The park is very nice with many fountains and trees, however, the whole park is full of leaves of the maple tree so the halls and the fountains do not look as nice as they could be if it was clean.

Gorgeous tropical landscaping and water features. We went early Sunday morning and enjoyed the solitude. An easy walk from the centro, and a must do. Also, nearby La Estancia restaurant has great food and view of the park.

This park is perfect to get in touch with nature and relax a bit. Also, if you'd like to do other activities or bring your kids to play. There are different activities offered such as rappelling, zip line, football courts, and a small zoo-like area....More

This was one of the nicest city parks I have ever visited. It is jungle-like, with many plants and trees. It also has many pools with very large coi (the large gold fish). There is also a rafter and snake house, a climbing wall and...More
