Jardín Hidalgo
Se le conoce también como Jardín Principal. Se consideraba, junto con la Capilla de Guadalupe, la línea divisoria que separaba a los dos grupos étnicos que habitaron el lugar en la fundación: los Guachichiles - originales habitantes - y las familias de indios otomíes. Actualmente frente al jardín, aún se encuentra una placa que hace memoria de este hecho.

En el año de 1827 por primera vez se conmemoró en este jardín el festejo de la Independencia, celebración promovida por José Guadalupe Nava. Es por tal razón que desde entonces se le llamó Jardin Hidalgo, habiendo sido antes conocido también como Jardín Unión.
