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. This is really nice!

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 amitherater as well as a number of man made waterfalls.

This park is fun to walk around! On weekends they sometimes offer a free zipline rice, which is very fun! I would recommend for sure!

What a great find in the middle of the city with lovely nooks and crannies at every turn. There is also a zip line in the middle of the park.

I totally enjoyed walking in this park. There also is a "zoo" with some snakes and birds that had been injured and that they are taking care of. It's an oasis in the city

This park is right downtown, perfect for a nature stroll after breakfast or while you're exploring the centro. It is well-kept and simply beautiful - a great example of the natural beauty that makes Xalapa one of the prettiest cities in Mexico! There are a few areas of the park that are not well-taken care of, but honestly, that's to... More

Something for everybody here even though it's not a massive park, everything is free to see or use, from zip lines to watching the turtles or basketball to walking under giant tree ferns.

Xalapa is a place of incredible plant diversity, microclimates, mountains, water and here a park to showcase it all. The movement of water throughout the park was lovely. Walking/Running trails, play equipment and basketball courts offer something for everyone. Lacking some maintenance but with an original genious in design that plant communities are thriving in their environment. Would love to... More
