view web site ›'s insider take:

Named for a brilliant-green spring-fed pool in a steep, narrow canyon, this 220-acre nature reserve on the city's outskirts contains outstanding species of indigenous succulents and cacti. Resident and migratory birds are drawn to an adjacent reservoir, and butterflies abound. Scenic miradors allow visitors to take in views, from the city to the Guanajuato Mountains. The park hosts community gatherings, concerts, and nature programs for local schools.—Maribeth Mellin
