A Day in the Park

By Herbert W. Piekow

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 and it is surprisingly located just 10 blocks south of the Cathedral and the colonial and governmental buildings in the heart of the city. While you could walk from the historic downtown area, take a cab 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, where I am enjoying an extended Spanish immersion course.
