Owner description: This park offers a bucolic refuge from the busy atmosphere of the city.

I stay next door to the park so visit it regularly. It is a massive green oasis in a city of concrete in an arid region. Cyclists, runners, family's having barbecues mingle with the wildlife. As a bird watcher this park should be on any fellow birders itinerary if you visit central Mexico. Many exotic flycatchers, egrets and cormorants. Plus a wide variety of dragonflies.

Park is closed Monday afternoons and observe the 20km speed limit. Well worth a visit any time of year.

This park is huge. My husband and I came here for a place to walk on a Sunday late morning. There are also places where a person can rent a bicycles to tool around on the flat roads, bring a mountain bike or 4 wheeler, play fútbol, feed ducks, fly your RC planes... There are picnic tables and barbecue grills tucked here and there. So, for city dwellers, it is a place to get some room to breathe and get a tree fix.
As a park experience overall, though, Tangamanga is so-so. The trees, although a welcome sight, were not planted with a sense of any landscape plan other than to cram in as many trees as possible, and most are introduced species like eucalyptus and pepper trees. Didn't notice any floral gardens. There was a "nature trail" that didn't yield very much information.
So to summarize, Tangamanga offers a lot of room to wander but it is visually uninteresting.

"Parque Tangamanga" is a big part of San Luis Potosi, crowded during the weekends but plenty of parking and space for everyone.

There's bike rentals, baseball diamonds, soccer fields, archery, tracks for quad motorcycles, motocross, etc etc etc

Bathrooms and trashcans just about everywhere, police presence inside the park so obey the speeding limit.

Great place to visit, kill time, do excercise etc...a must in San Luis Potosi.

If you want to run, read, relax, walk, play, talk, swim, ride a bicycle or eat you should definitely go to Tangamanga Park, it's free, clean and green. A must go when you are in San Luis Potosi.
