The main highlight of botanic gardens was actually the coolest iguana we have never seen before. The park has lots of green spaces but not enough flowers as we expected.

We did not stay long in the garden because we did not have much time during our city trip. Variety of plants and flowers. Free entrance. You see a lot of couples walking hand in hand but also families and young people.

I had the opportunity to visit Jardin Botanico, which is very close to the Planetario, during my recent visit to Medellin. At the moment of my visit, there was an exposition and the orchids.

It is a really big park with a nice butterfly enclosure (though nowhere as nice as the one in Changi airport). Was a little disappointed after a much nicer and smaller one in San Gil - so if you've been to that one you can skip this one (though it is free).

This small but pleasant in town Medellin park has a display of flowers and shops to purchase plants. By USA or European standards it is small in size but very pleasant and adjacent to entertainment and convention and exposition facilities.

So, here's the synopsis: it's a pretty park, great walking paths, very informative, and ITS FREE. Totally clutch, right? The only downside? It's right by the university, and for some reason another, the air is DENSE with pheromones. You catch my drift? We're not talking X-rated action: it's probably PG-13 at worst--but definitely something that makes you go: "Huh. In... More

The garden is a spacious place with beautiful flowers all over, I am not a fan of flower but yet enjoyed pretty much the orchids inside it, would rather to say it is a relaxing place with fresh air, worthwhile to visit!

Much preferred our afternoon here than at Avri park. This was mainly due to the gardens being easier to get to as well as being full of different wildlife! This is a perfect attraction if you'll looking for a relaxing stroll with lots to see an for free! The cafés also seven decent food.

We visited during the Flower fair and it was a wonderful experience. The Jardin was decorated with local flowers by local flower shops and the orquids displays were outstanding. The arts and cratfs fair was worth visiting and shopping.
