Parque del Barrio de La Candelaria
El parque del Barrio de la Candelaria fue construido el 21 de Marzo de 1981, a solicitud de un grupo de vecinos para mejorar sus condiciones de habitabilidad, en lo que fuera la gran plaza atrial del templo y en donde se establecía la Plaza de Toros o la fiesta profana de la candelaria, fue iniciativa del Alcalde Clemente Alcocer Rosado e inaugurado por el entonces Presidente de la República José López Portillo.

La festividad más importante de la ciudad es la de la Santísima Virgen de la Candelaria, cada año se le rinde homenaje, se le llama la Virgen de las Candelas porque lleva en un mano una vela encendida y en la otra carga un niño; recuerda a los católicos el pasaje bíblico donde a María presenta a Jesús al templo.
