"Guadalajara city parks" ("Los parques de mi ciudad") is an environmental interpretation project that shows in a creative way the seven largest parks of this Mexican city. The site promotes the appreciation of the city parks and includes general information, services, history and a large collection of pictures. This is a joint effort of the College of Agriculture, Biology and Animal Sciences, and the College of Social Sciences and Humanities, at the University of Guadalajara. The previous work includes a book published in 2001. After the book was published the use of the Web is a natural extension for this project. Several objectives are met here that go from facilitating basic information to promote visitation; from providing information to promoting actions to protect and demand improvement of this areas, and other ones in the city. The parks featured are: Agua Azul, Colomos, Barranca Oblatos, Metropolitano, Montenegro, El Centinela, y La Primavera.
