“Average park”
Reviewed June 26, 2012

For 6000 COP to get in probably only worth about 30 mins - 1 hour of walking around. Nice enough, but the plants aren't that exciting and not really anything more than you would have seen if you have travEled around different parts of Colombia.

“Take It or Leave It”
Reviewed March 16, 2012

This botanical garden--located where the Quebrada Curiti meets the Rio Fonce--is a shaded garden-like setting, meant for solitary strolls...or lazy afternoons with a good book or good friends.

I found the place kinda "uninspiring" and "normal"...however, I have visited many gorgeous locales around the world!
So...if you are like me...maybe "Parque Gallineral" is just "so-so" (and the 6000COP entry fee could be spent wiser somewhere else).

However, if you haven't seen tree-shaded beauty in far too long...of course, go visit the botanical garden, and stay awhile!
