Large enough to spend the afternoon, small enough to jot get lost. Water and flowers everywhere! Bridges, animals, life. We loved this park, definitely one of Xalapa's highlights. Hope to return one of these days.

Centrally located, tall trees and fish ponds, perfect for a stroll or sitting for a chat. Small kids seem to have a blast with fountains and looking at fish and turtles. It can get louder closer to a high school or a nearby restaurant.

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.

We walked in the park for approximately one hour after enjoying a breakfast in the restaurant (same name as the park) that overlooked the park. The park has raptors and snakes on display, but the many trails, pools, gardens make it a real joy and...More

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.
