19 cats of Cali

We took great pictures! It is 3 minute walk from Intercontinental hotel. I felt safe. I counted 19 cats including the big one. What is your count?.

This park is in the middle or near the business area in Cali. It's not that big but it gives you a feeling of peace between the beautifully creations of cats. Nice picture opportunities. Try to find the cat that fits your personality. River runs alongside park also. Must visit if you are passing by with taxi and it's free.

Beautiful, interesting cat sculptures arranged around a small city park. The cats are colorful and whimsical. There are a few good places to eat just across the street and around the park.

Very creative art and lovely cats! Check this out. It's beautiful. There's a beautiful creek that flows aside the cats. All of the cats are unique in design. You're sure to find one you'll love, even if you don't like cats!

Strange little park area near the river. We actually enjoyed saundering through this area. The cats are unique and it is definitely very different.

Ok so this park caught my attention because I saw all the art they put into cat sculpture; great artistic work and very nice place to sit and talk also great for a nice city and river view the calming sound of the river and the busy traffic balances the moment. Enjoyed very much being here.

Cool thing about this place is that there are ice cream, pastry and other deep fried vendors around the park so you are able to get some snacks and walk around and learn about the culture. Night time is great at the park and can meet new people and have a good time.

It very interesting in places where you can be a "local" have so much fun and learn at the same time about the culture of one country.

Parque El Gatos De Tejada is an amusing place of interest in Cali. As you enter the park along the Cali River you‘re greeted by El Gato del Rio - a three-ton bronze sculpture created by late Colombian artist Hernando Tejada! Tejada moved to Cali from Bogota at the age of 14 and donated the sculpture in 1996, two years... More

Walked through the park at night. Some of the sculptures are pretty interesting. It is clearly a touristy thing to do but it is nice to stroll through it in the evenings, along the river. There are restaurants near as well.
