Great place to hang out. Lots of birds to feed and take pics, very nice scenery. You find locals selling popcorn and churros, etc.

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...More

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.
