 Jardín de San JoséEl jardín en desnivel al frente del templo de San José es un ejemplo del desarrollo arquitectónico de la zona, influenciado por los estatus políticos y sociales registrados en el siglo XIX; del-México independiente. La división del jardín en parterres remata hacia el centro con una fuente elaborada en cantera rosa siendo su brocal rematado, en su parte superior por un especie de collar con sus estrías hacia el interior. El surtidor que se ubica al centro es conformado por una superposición de elementos vegetales, que sorportan un plato que es rematado por una piña de la cual brota el agua. Colocada en 1849, y cuya función era abastecer de agua a los pobladores de la zona. Otra característica por resaltar en este lugar son las bancas elaboradas en cantería de toba volcánica, de la misma naturaleza que los sillares y cornisas del templo al igual que la fuente en el centro. En la actualidad la fuente tiene una función ornamental, que aunado su entorno arbolado, genera una atmósfera refrescante.
