So off we went. The ecotianguis feels much more at home in their new space. I´ll take pictures and post another week. But, as we had never been to the Biblioparque Norte (I believe it just opened earlier this year), we wandered a bit. They´ve got basketball courts, soccer fields with beautiful fake grass, tennis courts, and a baseball field. Being that it´s the BIBLIOparque, they´re supposed to have a library. Perhaps they do, but we went late enough on Saturday that the building was closed. Looking through the windows, I spied shelves. But they were empty. Nice try, Biblioparque.
But really, I´ll get there during the week and get a better feel for the place. They do offer yoga classes, tennis lessons, etc. But what called our attention this last week was the miniature golf course.
I know I haven´t seen miniature golf in Saltillo--heck, in all of Mexico, now that I think of it. But we now have a sweet, little course in Saltillo. And it´s FREE.
So we had to play a round.
Saltillo has its ups and downs, but it sure puts some effort into its city parks. Thanks, Biblioparque Norte! I´ll be back!
|The park must have once been a factory and this colossal tower must have been too big to remove. Thank God Coahuila is not near ANY earthquake-prone areas!|
|The girl rocks out golf on the wii, so she was psyched to try it out in real life.|
Where is the Biblioparque Norte?
Just north of the intersection of Isidro Lopez Zertuche and Colosio. (By the Quinta Real.) Look for a large but simple blue and white structure (sculpture?) on the south-bound side of the road. That´s the entrance. Plenty of parking.
