Parque Juarez is the official name of this park but it is frequently referred to as El Llano by locals. It's not a major tourist attraction by itself but so much seems to happen there or close by and it is really well used. The park is about a KM or eight blocks north of the real center of the city of Oaxaca. It's a block wide and two and a half blocks long and has a church at its northern end. There really is always something happening there. Go there and you will see people sitting and relaxing, selling food, jogging around and around the circuit, people walking their dog, couples hugging, groups doing aerobics and others practicing dances, and more. A new system shoots jets of water into the air with accompanying music and lights towards the north end of the park. A few places to eat are near the park and a few are even across the street. The English language library is just a half a block away. The Teatro Juarez, which frequently has music, is right across the street. The first class bus station is only three or four blocks away and the main baseball field is just beyond the bus station. And, if you are in Oaxaca on a Friday then you must go to the Parque Juarez since it's market day. All kinds of stuff to buy and loads of great food and sweets too. We got to know the park well since we stayed at a posada that was also right across the street.
