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.

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.

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.
