This is Ajedrez
El Parque del Ajedrez is a park funded by BUAP, the largest public university in Puebla. It is named the ‘Chess Park’ as it is one of the facilities offered (free of charge). There is even a chess teacher who gives classes. The park is a large modern space which also includes a children’s playground (the best I have ever seen), and a large number of exercising equipment pieces. There are two big outdoor chess boards (pieces can be borrowed from the office) and there are also numerous chess tables (in the shade) for which you can also borrow boards and the pieces. The park also contains numerous outdoor art pieces and a café. The park is right next to the ‘Complejo Cultural Universitario‘ (also BUAP funded) which is a cultural center. Both are well worth a visit, and offer a very modern mexican feel – a nice change of pace to el centro histórico de Puebla.
