An adorable refreshing park to get out of city roads. Beautifully designed and very well maintained, quiet and not so many people. A nice little park for a date, to read a book or have coffee / ice cream
There is a restaurant inside the park and a pool for swimming

This is such a magical and wonderful park. If you want tons of entertainment you probably won’t find it here, but if you enjoy strolling around looking at nature it’s great. We saw squirrels, parrots (around the restaurant), iguanas, and a very cute stray cat. Spent a couple of hours in there, and it was a perfect afternoon walk.

Although the park is beautiful, it doesn't seem to be well kept. Fun to go and walk around for a few hours, but it is a little pricey.

Poorly maintained by any standards.
Neglected animals on display incl. around 30 tortoises in a pen with zero vegetation and limited water.
Trash littered liberally.
All park benches in a state if disrepair and unsable.
Felt sorry for the half feathered parrot which greats you in entry.
Could be something special in this otherwise awful town but it is a fail i'm afraid...

The parc used to be indeed a small piece of jungle at the doors of the chaotic San Gil. Some trees are still beautiful. However, mismanagement of the direction of the parc destroyed it: they put electric cables in the trees for a night show, music everywhere, a swimming pool that does not belong to such a place (it was a parc, not a "balneario”). All this can be reversed. However, what will still be destroyed is the once lovely beach, in front of which an apartment house of dubious taste and a motel-looking attraction parc with bad and very loud music have been built.. What a shame.

The park is quite large with many stoned pathways to stroll and explore the vegetation. With macaws, squirrels, rabbits and parrots to interact with along the way, it becomes a very unique experience. There is also a large swimming pool to dip into to cool off from the warm temperatures and restaurants and bar to refresh and enjoy a meal or snack.

PROS
*This isn’t your average park. There are colorful animals and plants, charming bridges and massive trees.
*Good place to take photos.
*The 6.000 admission is pretty cheap.

CONS
*I enjoyed the place because I like photography. If I wasn’t there to take pictures, I might be kind of bored.

We’d expected a large park with many trees with barba de viejo. Were a bit disappointed in that aspect. But it’s a nice park to get away from the busier city for an hour or two. If you like smaller wildlife (birds, butterflies, lizards, squirrels), take your camera w you.

Lovely little park where it’s a bit more peaceful and tranquil than the city. Nice to get away for an hour or so.

There are red squirrels, iguanas and a whole host of other bird species including the odd hummingbird.

The bearded trees are very cool. Just a nice place to go and hang out for a bit.

Visited this park in the afternoon as we arrived in San Gil at around 2pm. It’s about 10 minutes stroll from the central plaza and cost 6000 COP to enter & an additional 4000 COP to enter if you want to take a dip in one of the swimming pools. The park itself is attractive, with interesting flora including large trees dripping with moss. The paths lead you round a variety of different sections, by a large river, through areas of different plants and across bridges over small streams. There is also a few small cafe restaurants which offered a good spot for me to have a drink and an ice cream at a good price, whilst my partner went for a dip in the swimming pool. Worth visiting if you want more tranquility than the town has to offer for a couple of hours
