This park's green space is consistently enjoyed by kids on the playgrounds, families watching performances at the outdoor concert stage called la concha (the shell) and recreational footballers playing pick-up games. There's also an aviary and a butterfly enclosure, jogging trails, as well as a separate greenhouse for orchids.
One recent visitor described the Parque Agua Azul as the "lungs of the city," since it allows visitors to take in deep breaths of fresh air amidst the park's fountains, flowers and trees. However, a few travelers said that they felt the park attracted pickpockets; some also lamented the park's dirty appearance.
Admission to the Parque Agua Azul costs 5 Mexican pesos (less than 50 cents). To traverse the 20 blocks from the city center to the park, you can hop on a route No. 60 bus heading south from Calzada Independencia. (Any bus marked "Agua Azul" will also get you there.) The park is open from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Tuesday through Sunday.
