Walk, run or jog your way around this big and green park in the middle of the city, close to the Botanic Gardens. From here you will have a great view over the mountains. Just lie down on the grass and relax.

Big, big park. With tents to buy some food or drinks after a run around the park, or maybe a walk. This park has entertainment for kids as well, and is pet friendly. You can have a picnic and enjoy a concert or fly a kite in August. Has also mini outdoors gyms if what you are looking for is... More

Hidden near the Chapinero neighborhood in Bogota, this park is truly a "central park." I only had the opportunity to see the southernmost part of the park on a Saturday. Families were hanging out picnicking and kids were even playing field hockey in what looked like a well organized tournament. Food stalls/carts are often open so you can sample some... More

Great place to run, walk, bike. 3.2km soft-surface path through the park. Can also continue onto the bike, running paths outside of the park. The park is very much alive with people doing all sorts of activities. Little food stands with fresh orange juice, fruits, etc. at one of the park entrances. Just wish the bathrooms were more conveniently located.... More

I spent so much time in this park. It is larger than other parks. On weekends there are a lot of people, specifically on Sunday. There are various playgrounds for children, a large pond where you can rent row or pedal boats, an exercise station, kiosks that sell snacks like fruit, corn, ice cream, drinks, chips, etc., there is also...

The park is certainly a great setting for locals who don't have a chance to leave the city. It's a park, in the middle of the city. No place to really eat or drink, they could do a better job

I read that this park was slightly larger than New York's Central Park and had to check it out. While I am a bit skeptical of that this is in fact a giant, beautiful park that you can use at your will. It's a little out of the way, especially if you're staying in La Candelaria (we had to take... More

Great place to go on a weekday to find some peace and quiet away from the city. I went on a Tuesday and had the place to myself minus the army of hardworking grounds keepers. Worth a visit if you are tired of the bustling city and have some time to kill in the city.

Beautiful park with the mountains seemingly bordering the park's vista all around. So much to do and not do here. Very large park so focus on one particular area.
