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),...More

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...More

A great place to connect with your spiritual self and relax from the hustle and bustle of the town. We go every time we visit San Gil and there’s always something different to see. Great photography opportunities. The park needs a little more planting and...More

Traveling to San Gil or Chicamocha Canyon from Bogota by car or bus could be tired; a short walk surrounded by trees and listening a short introduction of Guane indigene culture is a good idea.

We needed a place to run in the morning. While the trails are a bit rocky, they worked for a circular run. The park is very tranquil considering how busy the city is just beyond the gates.

Beautiful park with a swimming pool- we loved wandering around the park (entry is 6000 COP without access to the pool): Lots of squirrels, birds, butterflies, and different flowers.

Nothing spectacular, some nice trees and views which can in fact be viewed in a lot of other places around San Gil and Barichara also. Not really worth the 6000 COP entrance fee, but on the other hand quite cheap if you seek a quick...More

My girlfriend and I spent a lovely couple of hours wandering around and admiring the beautiful foliage. A great place to chill with a book for a couple of hours as a break from other adventures in San Gil.
