Bosque Colomos

Bosque Colomos in one of the largest parks in Guadalajara, and a key area for recreation. On a typical morning you will find runners (early morning), moms with strollers (mid-morning), and teenagers (afternoon), walking and running around the paved trails (3k & 5k). Later in the afternoon and evening, the playground area and basketball courts get some attention, and children have art classes in the "castle". On weekends, the duck pond sees families and the horses get ridden.

It is a huge forest-like park with trails criss-crossing in every direction. One of the gems in the park is the Japanese garden. It is a consistently maintained and manicured little garden for walking around. Of course in typical Mexican style, you are not supposed to sit on the grass anywhere in the park; grass is for looking at.

To Visit
: Entrance is 4.5 pesos per adult, parking also 4.5 pesos; free on Sundays. There are three entrances: Patria (for playground, basketball courts), Camacho (for duck pond, Japanese garden), and Torreon.
