I booked a tour through Marvel Tours Cali. My bilingual tour guide, Oscar, took me to this park along the river. The Gato de Tejada was very neat. It was nice to see local artists exhibiting their work in a permanent, well maintained, location. Each Gato has a story and all of them are unique. A few of the Gato's... More

First of all, I love mi GATO de TEJADA. There is not a better emblem now for the city of Cali than that of el gato de tejada y sus novias. Folklore rumors that the cat (el gato de Tejada) is surrounded by his females cats (las novias) such as men here in the city of Cali have access to... More

I went after going to Cristo Rey. It's not a large park but nice to stroll and see artwork. The park is alongside el Rio Cali which is cool. You can get ice cream or something to eat nearby. Theres tons of food/pastry spots all over Cali....

Squeezed between number of gravity trafficked roads, this small pearl just shows up. 16 decorated cats, looks like mire are to come or some have been taken away. This nice little park with art cats are such a pleasure here in Cali. Nice just to relax on a bench looking at the cats and the small river flowing just along... More

As a cat lover I loved this park. Every single one of them has a story. They're big so one can take pictures with them. Is well located, so one can enjoy a good meal or dessert. The "Empanaditas del Obelisco" are a MUST!

I'm a cat lover so this park was something I've never seen before. About 15 different cats with different stories attached to each one. Very cool and a fun way to spend an hour in Cali

Please include a visit to see the Gatos on your visit to Cali. I would suggest including a stop here with another attraction. This is of course a great photo op so be prepared to take some fun photos. If you are touring by taxi; have your driver wait to the side of the road. Mind the cars and motorcycles.... More

If you are an artist, you should visit it. Just alone the walk by the river in itself is intersting.
