Tangamanga Park

San Luis Potosí

Parque Tangamanga (Tangamanga Park) is considered the green lungs of the city of San Luis Potosí. It’s located on the grounds of the former Hacienda Tenería, which supplied water to the capital for four centuries.

The park boasts a zoo, a plant nursery, picnic areas, cabins, and a waterpark. It is sizeable enough to require a bicycle in order to completely explore it. Of course, this service is available to visitors.

Another of Tangamanga's treasures are its two museums. The Ecomuseum showcases the natural wealth contained in San Luis Potosí's 19 nature reserves. You'll find recreations of sites such as the Wirikuta Reserve, the Ogarrio tunnel in Real Catorce, the Laguna Media Luna (Half-Moon Lagoon), and the forested highlands of Xilitla .

The second museum is the Laberinto de las Ciencias y Artes (Cience and Art Labyrinth), an interactive museum that seeks to foster a greater understanding of the origins of life through computer games and learning programs. In a separate area, there is a pen where children can interact with ducks, sheep, goats, and rabbits. It also boasts the “Pasaje de Cedro Rojo” (Red Cedar Landscape), a sculpture by Japanese artist, Kiyoto Ota Okuzawa.

An important tidbit about this museum regards its terra-cotta-colored architecture. It was designed by Ricardo and Victor Legorreta and has won several awards, including one by the International Academy of Architecture.

Tangamanga Park is located on the west side of the city of San Luis Potosí and opens daily from 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
