“Fun and different but not enough facilities”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Good facilities at the front of the park but near the springs we had to spread blankets on a hill. Not very comfortable. Needs more tables, benches and banos

“It's glorious return...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 14, 2012

over a year ago, the park which is very,very large had a bad fire. It was brought under control and it has taken a while, but mother nature has it's way of cleaning house and rejuvenating it's forests. This is Mexico, so things grow so much faster than other parts of the world! May trails have been restored for walks or for the morning and early evening joggers. It is a grand scale park-forest, and will be for centuries more on the west side of this large metropolis!

“Nice place to visit and see Nature!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2012

Took the family there for the day to the Rio Salado. The waters are warm and nature abounds. Fishies nibbled at our feet as we relaxed at the waters edge. The kids splashed around in the little pools along the river. It was a good place to cool off and relax. Not sure how far from the city it is since family took us and we went to Tequila first then headed there afterwards. :) Have fun exploring!!

“Unexpectedly nice!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

Giant forest very close to Guadalajara. Lots of trails for walking or bycicling. It is a very big patch of forest, but if you follow the trails you simply cannot get lost. You can see how big it is when flying into Guadalajara. Caution: during dry season be careful with forest fires.

“A breath of fresh air”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2012

One of the must-visit places in Guadalajara. Beautiful vistas, hiking paths, flora and fauna. We went on a three-hour hike and brought lunch and saw thirty varieties of trees and birds from as far away as Costa Rica.
