Like most cities I've visited or lived in, Guadalajara has many beautiful, well-maintained parks within
the city limits of which they are justifiably proud.
The gigantic 40-acre Parque Agua Azul (we simply say Parque Azul), may well be the best of the best

to the intersection of Calzada Independencia and Calle Gonzalez Gallo from downtown for about $2 US
and save your feet and time for the park.
I headed to the park on a recent Saturday with some of my fellow students from the University of Guadalajara,
