 Jardín de las RosasEl nombre oficial de este jardín se le otorga en honor al profesor de San Nicolás de Hidalgo, Luis González Gutiérrez, mientras que el nombre popular como Jardín de las Rosas, lo recibe del conjunto educativo religioso ubicado en sus inmediaciones. En su origen contaba con una pila de aprovisionamiento de agua para el barrio y algunos árboles, pero con las modificaciones realizadas a los jardines durante la segunda mitad del siglo XIX se le integraron nuevos espacios ajardinados y vegetación
ornamental.La configuración rectangular, alargada en el eje oriente-poniente, genera un andador con una fuente de cantería ubicada centralmente, la fuente es de trazo circular concéntrico con brocal dovelado y relieves en su cara externa, en la parte exterior del brocal a nivel del piso, se define un escalón y un piso de
losetas de canteria dispuestas radialmente, el brocal se desplanta sobre un pedestal de sección cuadrangular que sirve de apoyo a una columnilla abalaustrada, el cual soporta a su vez el vertedero en forma de concha sobre el que se destaca un elemento en forma de piña del cual surge el borbotón



de agua. Un eje transversal central está marcado con dos lotecillos ocupados con árboles que definen la simetria con la que se desarrollan ocho espacios enmarcados con guarniciones de cantería que albergan áreas ajardinadas. En los extremos del andador central, se ubican ocho bancas en canteria que completan la armonía de este espacio. También contiene dos esculturas de la autoría de Ignacio Asúnsolo colocadas en 1947, una para conmemorar el cuarto centenario del nacimiento de Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra en memoria del célebre escritor y la otra del primer obispo de Michoacán, Don Vasco de Quiroga.
English translation:The Garden of the Roses The official name of this garden is given in honor of the professor of San Nicolás de Hidalgo, Luis González Gutiérrez, while the popular name of The Garden of the Roses come from the religious educational group located nearby. Originally it had a water supply for the neighborhood and some trees, but with the modifications made to the gardens during the second half of the 19th century, new landscaped areas and ornamental vegetation were integrated. The rectangular configuration, elongated on the east-west axis, generates a pedestrian walkway with a centrally located stonework fountain. The fountain is concentrically circular with curved edges and reliefs on its external face. On the



outer part of the curb at the level of the floor, a step and a floor of worked-stone tiles is arranged radially, with the ridge placed on a pedestal with a quadrangular section that supports a balustrade column, which in turn supports the shell-shaped spillway on which a pineapple element that acts as a water fountain stands out. A central transversal axis is marked with two small lots occupied with trees that define the symmetry, which includes eight spaces framed with stonework garrisons that houses developed landscaped areas. At the ends of the central walkway, there are eight stone benches that complete the harmony of this space. It also contains two sculptures authored by Ignacio Asúnsolo in 1947, one to commemorate the fourth centenary of the birth of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra in memory of the famous writer and the other of the first bishop of Michoacán, Vasco de Quiroga.
