I would hiily recommend visiting the Jardin Botanico. It is free and metro-accessible, and a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Great spot for a picnic or just a leisurely stroll.

A gem in the center of a big city. Beautiful plants and wildlife everywhere. Bring some wine and cheese and have a picnic, you won't regret it.

After visiting other botanical gardens around the world (like Kew Gardens in England) this place might not seem that impressive but still for me is a "must visit" while you are in Medellin.
Entrance is free (except if you are visiting a especial exhibition) and have loads of green where you can relax, enjoy reading a good book, have a snack or even a nap.
Is right next to one of the metro station which makes it very accessible and is also near to other few interesting spots like Parque Explora, so go visit!

one of the many attractions of Medellin. It's free of charge, meters away from Metro Universidad and well conserved, clean and very interesting. Many plants, flowers kept with lots of love by the gardeners.

this place was great to walk around! we spent hours in there and would've stayed longer if we had the time. It appeared to be the case that people were just lounging, having picnics etc. we even saw a wedding photo session and the whole set up for the ceremony! you should definitely give yourself a few hours to walk around!
