We took our son who is 2 on a tuesday, he was the only child in the place but he had a lot of fun!!! He played in the sand and the different playgrounds. This park is huge, clean and relaxing.

It s a great idea to spend a Sunday at the park with friends. Play sports, play guitar, walk or cycle around, eat some food, see the people, the artists. Enjoy nature.

A very nice place to hang out. Went there on the weekend and it was full of people making sports or just walking. Even when it's full of people there's plenty of space for everyone.

Somewhat underused when we were there, but nothing says "Major city" like a grand plaza and in Bogota, this is it. Llamas abound, pigeons everywhere, people selling trinkets.

fantastic place to go and play some soccer. The lake offers some activities, there are some ducks and is big enough to spend a couple of hours there.

It is a large park, surrounded by the city. There is a lake in the center and almost no further attractions. I expected at least, some place serving a good Colombian coffee. It deserved a better cleaning.

This plaza or square is where rallies, protests, presentations, and gatherings occur. It is a short walk for the President to come here and speak. It is a quiet place to rest.

This is the hub of the old city. It is surrounded on all four sides by buildings that hold volumes of Columbian history. The plaza is more of a navigation point than a destination, unless you are a pigeon.
