El Jardin is where the townsfolk gather for just about every major event that happens in our small town: civic ceremonies, town meetings, parades, etc. While you will find a number of people hanging out in El Jardin on any given day, the busiest of all is Sunday.
You can't walk through El Jardin, without noticing this large monument in honor of our benefactor, J. Jesus Gonzalez Gallo, who went on to become Governor of the great state of Jalisco in 1947.
Speaking of monuments to prominent figures in our town's history, the most recent addition is this bust in honor of Cardinal Juan Sandoval Iñiguez's 50th anniversary in the Catholic Church. The Cardinal was born and raised in Yahualica and is now the Archbishop of Guadalajara.
No Jardin would be complete without a kiosco. On Sunday evenings, la banda del pueblo (the town symphony) can be heard playing la serenata, which starts at 8pm, for all to enjoy.
One of my favorite sights in El Jardin is los pensionados, a group of elderly gentlemen who gather daily to catch up on local gossip.
There are plenty of bancas (benches) for one to sit and pass the time.
You can also get your shoes shined. There are fours shoeshine stands located on one side of El Jardin.
But the best part of El Jardin, is that it's a place where you can spend an enjoyable afternoon/evening with la familia.
I've shown you Mi Mexico, now it's time for you to show me yours.
