“Wonderful Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2012

This park was just minutes from our B&B and we walked in the park day and night and felt very safe. It is an old park with many paths and is very well used, with lots of activity.

“Calming City Park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2008

After seeing the big attractions of San Miguel de Allende, stroll through Juárez Park. It is due east of the Allende Institute. This is where San Miguel was founded, near the water source, but the center of town shifted to the Jardín. The local park seems to always have things going on. If you are lucky, you will see young boys practicing bullfighting techniques. While we were there, a league basketball game was full of action as the crowded stands full of fans cheered their boys on.
It is beautifully landscaped, making it a wonderful spot to sit, unwind, and people watch. There are vendors there selling packaged food and drinks. There are picnic tables in the middle of the park and a few grills for charcoal as well. Wander the paths through the lush, mature trees and besides the beautifully flowering gardens. There are ancient fountains and stone bridges. Just across the street on the east side of the park, the stone tubs of the outdoor public laundry, El Choro ("spout" or "spring'), are still in use. It should be noted in early February, the park blossoms as the site of the annual Candelaria spring festival of plants.
