We visited the gardens after a walk through Simon Bolivar park. The gardens are very well tended and laid out with different themes. One area had lots of hummingbirds. It's also very close to the airport - so great for plane spotting if you enjoy...More

In the gardens there no really many impressive plants or trees. It is a bit overrated. I liked though the tall palmeras very very much.

To be honest, visiting this park was not a revelation for me. You can visit it best to relax in the green if time enough besides the major sights of Bogota.

It is a hidden treasure in Bogotá. Keep in mind that if there are countries that have their gardens and even large public parks, the variety of flora and fauna of Colombia is one of the largest in the world, which is why what is...More

This well-manicured, lovingly tended garden is the oasis of Bogotá. It is well organized and plants are clearly marked. Guided tours are available in Spanish in the afternoon.
