There's always people sitting in the park enjoying the day. A favorite of mine is to buy rice and feed the pigeons. A must see in Xalapa! If you walk away from the Main Street you can also find some great views of the city .

If the weather is good you have a fine panorama over the mountains, but most of the time it is cloudy. There is always something to see in the park, so it is nice to walk around

This park is well liked by locals and is designed with multiple levels. Unfortunately, the downtown area is clogged with slow moving traffic. The city's poor transportation system is accompanied by hundreds of taxicabs that drive non-stop trying to pick up pedestrians.

By all means take every opportunity to enjoy nature in this lovely park.We were there in October, which was a good time of the year to go for walks.

Historical park smack in the center of Xalapa ... could almost be considered a plaza. The large patio area that extends out on one side offers wonderful views of the city below ... and on the weekends it is bustling with food vendors and musicians.

The park is the center of Xalapa with street-artists, tiny kiosks and a few restaurants nearby. The trees give shade during a hot summer day. But you won't spend more than an hour here, though it's nice to eat some street-food there and watch the authentic mexican life passing you by.

Went for a run here in the late afternoon. Lot of people out running, walking, and browsing. Lots of students and easy to navigate. Monuments were very interesting. Great way to experience a busy city!

A very pleasant park that is terraced with several levels and lots of plants and trees. Nice views of the surrounding city and nearby mountains. Some of the trees are really, really tall! There a lots of places to sit and chat or people watch. A nice surprise was an internet center with (apparently)free computer and internet access in the... More

This park is great for people watching with its many park benches and a marvelous view of the Sierra Madre Oriental mountain range when the sky is clear. The Pico de Orizaba(Citlaltepetl which means "Mountain of the galaxy) 18,000 foot volcanic peak covered with snow is very impressive, as well as the Naucantepetl(Cofre de Perote) to the west. There are... More
