“This landmark gets better all the time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2012

I wrote a review of this park almost 4 years ago. I just noticed that it is one and the same as Glorieta Chapalita as I now know that it is officially named. So having them next to each other on the same page needs to be combined. Since I posted 5 of the six pictures, I see that I need to return and take some more pictures! The park has become even more enjoyable since the officials of Colonia Chapalita have made better street crossings for the busy Sunday art show and sale that keeps growing each year. New restaurants have opened as well as a new Globo, which is a landmark bakery here since the late 1800's! When you want a break from the show or just sit and people-watch, we now have this new addition to sit on the patio right across the street. On the opposite side there is a new OfficeMax, that is very convenient for the folks who live around the park, but also is a great place to use their ciber area with brand new computers. I thought originally it would look out of place. But considering it remodeled a once grand home that had been left unattended for years, it has finished the circle with a popular shopping venue for computer and tech lovers, blending into the neighborhood. And it has also prompted the nearby banks to give their facades a nice lift. Still a great park-or landmark. I will post new photos soon!

“Chapalita Glorieta”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2012

The glorieta is a nice park but is difficult to get to since crossing the street is a pain...now that they have eliminated a lane it is easier and the Sunday Artist market is worth going to see.

“This is just a traffic circle”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2011

Can't imagine why TravelAdvisor wants people to rate a traffic circle, but that's what this is.

“best mexican snacks and food at glorieta chapalita”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2009

One of my all time favorite things to do in Guadalaja is by far spending a Sunday afternoon in the glorieta chapalita, it`s full of local artist and VERY good mexican snacks (ice creams, churros, buñuelos, corn, chips, raspados mmmm everything), I recomend sunday night instead of dinner walk around the park and try as many snacks as you can, if your still hungry walk over to avenida Tepeyac (a couple of blocks from there) and there are amazing tacos, if you have a car drive down on tepeyac towards Niño Obrero and youll see a taco stand FULL off people "Los Alteños" the all time best tacos in Guadalajara, if your willing to try dont miss out on the tounge tacos (tacos de lengua) with green sauce!!!!! and ENJOY!!!!!! this is probably as mexican as a sunday can get!
