Strange and unusal cat park

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.

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.

I was fortune to personally know the sculptor, Hernando Tejada. He lived in this area near the river. This are has become an afternoon hang out of the people. just grab and ice cream cone (my favorite passion fruit) and walk around the river walk, later go to the Museum of la Tertulia or. Watch a movie. get some empanadas.... More

Came here on the night that I arrived in Cali And it is really nice sculptures! I love the scenery and all the different types of cats and it was really cool that they have different background stories. Something else, but do recommend it

If you can read some Spanish or if you like cats, this small exhibit is worth your time. If not, you may not appreciate the meaning behind the art.
