This is a beautiful park across from the theater. People stop and take a break on the park benches. The trees offer shade and are gorgeous. Vendors sell food, drinks and souvenirs.

Beautiful little park, it's always busy, especially during the evenings. There's always something going on.

Sit on a bench, buy a beverage or corn from a street vendor, enjoy the street activity or people strolling through the lovely, canopied garden. A perfect spot to spend some time in Guanajuato!

Loved this park (Jardin). We were there during Semana Santa and every night bandsand mariachi would play till the wee hours! The Jardin is surrounded by hotels and outdoor restaurants and pubs. Great location for people watching!
