This is a most delightful, shady park full of greenery, benches, birds and quiet tranquility, after spending two hours walking, talking and shopping in the overactive center of San Luis Potosí, it is definitely the place to be. There is a centuries-old, giant fountain spewing liquid freshness and good "negative" ions high in the air, drawing children and wild doves like a magnet. Here young couples sit quietly holding hands, park cleaners silently sweep the grounds with large, rustic brooms and the hustle-bustle of the city melts away. There are two cart-stands on the street boundary, selling fresh, cut-up fruit in large acrylic cups, juice or pop in one, packaged food snacks in the other, and public bathrooms are available half a block down the Callejón (alley) de San Francisco, at the opposite width-end. The park is about two city-blocks in length but only half across, it fronts the ancient Church of San Francisco and another (?), and is surrounded by beautifully renovated colonial buildings and residential housing dating back to the founding of this 17th century city. There is an excellent craft-market all the way down the Callejón de S.F., right by the side of the church, with bar/restaurants, shops and boutiques across and, at the very end of the alley, a terrific night spot called La Piquería Mescalería, which specializes in Mescal cocktails, Pulque, live Blues, Jazz, and the absolute best bar-scene in San Luis. Do not miss this wonderful plaza and adjacent area.
