It has a pretty nice looking pool but the grounds look like they've been let go for the last few years. There are witches beard trees and a few macaws hanging around but not really a highlight.

Gallinero is the name of a Tree, which supposed to be the most common in such Park.. but there are just a few; so the park should be renamed into a better name, according to the local flora and fauna.

The park has been sadly neglected, the plants don't look good and it requires a bit of maintenance. I used to go when I was younger and had better memories of the place, it is a shame it hasn't been taken care of.

We killed some time here and it was very nice. If you're in San Gil anyway, you're probably on your way to somewhere better for this kind of thing e.g. Parque Tayrona. But if not pop along - lovely plantlife, a few wacky animals (chance of monkeys) and butterflies. Watch out for slippery paths! For more travel tips in San... More

This is a lovely little park, worth a little stroll. I think it will be amazing when they are finished working on it. It's more than I would expect to find in Colombia.

You do not expect a huge building just behind a river....it supposed to be a place were nature is the main attraction and it is not. The toilets are incredible hard to find (misleading signs), no souvenirs at all ( it could be a great idea to get more money) beside a coffee mugg. The manager could do much better... More

What could be a very rewarding botanical experience is let down by poor maintenance and lack of investment. The quality and quantity of plants, flowers etc was very poor for such a magnicent situation

I truly loved my time at this attraction! For only $2.50 could wander around this beautiful park seeing giant trees and ferns. The place has several little streams flowing though it for more paradise-like ambiance. I wanted to take my clothes off and really be with nature, but I decided against it.... lol
