There are a lot of nice walk paths, where you can see a wide variety of flowers, plants and trees. By the time I was there, they had orchids which were very nice!

This place is gorgeous. We wandered around for quite a while. There were people having picnics, sitting around on benches, and people just out for a stroll. There are lizards and birds just walking around the paths. It is a nice place to go for a lazy afternoon.

If you want to spend a bit more money, go to the restaurant In Situ after a slow stroll through the park. Amazing food and such a relaxing atmosphere to top off the experience.

If you love nature, I would definitely recommend. If you love adventure, you could probably pass. Although it was very pretty and quite a large park, there was not very much to actually do. Me and my group had some fun with the children's labyrinth and called it a day.

This is the park of Medellin, so nice, quite, with great atmosphere and energy! You should go and spend a couple of hours and thanks God that there is such a nice place in the city!

We went to the Botanical Gardens during the Flower Festival. The arrangement and displays that were in the contest were absolutely stunning. If you come to the Flower Festival in August and do not go to the Botanical Gardens to see the displays, you missed out on one of the best parts of the Flower Festival.

I'm a total nature lover, so this was right up my alley. Beauty at its finest. This gave me such a different perspective on Medellin. What a contrast.

Very pretty and diverse. Definitely worth checking out. It's a great place to walk, read, nap, and/or hangout with your friends or significant other. The butterfly house is nice but small and there didn't seem like a lot of diversity in species.

Well laid out garden. Many places to sit, relax, enjoy a picnic lunch. A nice selection of restaurants to fit every budget. The butterfly exhibit was amazing. Try to spot the large iguanas roaming around the park/garden.

Great convention location! Watching speakers while looking out to the amazing tropical gardens could not have been a better combination. An obligated site to see in Medellin even if not there for an event.
