It's a great place to get out of the sun, or the rain as was our case. The trees are pretty, the walk ways are well kept. Loved the architecture of the gazebo and the surrounding buildings. Lots of shopping if you want to walk around, lots of benches if you want to sit down. People and music and food,... More

outdoor tv screens for watching futbol matches as well as good food and drinks priced reasonably. Also, the Jardin is in a lovely spot, bounded by the 1890s theater and a gorgeous church.

The shaped ficus trees in the center of this square are worth seeing. The many restaurants and hotels around the square are your usual tourist-focused ones with the usual hucksters and hustlers. If you like being where the tourist action is, this is your place.

Beautiful place to hang out but also to sit and observe: tourists but also (and more interestingly) locals from old retired folk to teenage students to college students. Great place to visit.

Beautiful place to walk around during the day as well as by night. So charming and it feels like time does not go by. The sound of music at night, the smell of delicious cuisine, the voices of people singing, talking laughing, children laughter and romance all in one place. A perfect place to fall in love with life second... More

This is a very beautiful little jardin. It is a different shape than most I have seen in Mexico. Music playing, children playing and all the little local vendors with their wares and dulces.

Found this place very relaxing, clean and welcoming. Nice stop for cooling down, resting or having some food. There´s also opportunity hear great songs from artists playing guitars.

Guanajuato is a beautiful colonial city, and when you visit you must spend an evening in Jardin de la Union, it is definitely an experience. This "Jardin" is a plaza surrounded by hotels, the beautiful Juarez theater, a chapel, restaurants, and Artists. Some locals call it "La plaza del Queso" the Cheese plaza, due to its triangular shape and its... More

The pruned hedges and trees make quite a pleasant jardin in between business buildings. It always seemed busy during any part of the day and evening because of the restaurants and noise in general. I walked around and "so what".
