Attached to the park is the small zoo. Although it is a little old fashioned with large fenced areas rather than the natural type we now see in the US, the animals as well as their environment seemed clean.
Once we exited the zoo area on the other side of the park we could barely get through the crowd of families with their excited children!
From there it was back down Calle 59, across Santiago Park and to home. Just another beautiful day to take a walk in Merida!
