A lovely park in the centre of town, small entry fee but worth it. Nice cafe and restaurant. Red squirrels, birds and lots of native trees and plants to see. Lovely little pool too.

The trees are huge and the moss growing on them is very pretty but the park doesn't have much more. Skip the pool, it isn't worth the extra entry fee.

This park is amazingly beautiful. While walking the paths you will see huge trees, flowers, and various local shrubs all embedded in a stunningly beautiful landscape of little rivers, boulders, and fern. Walking all trails took me around 2 hours, but you will likely find...More

Easily accessabile, only 10 minutes away from the main Plaza. This is a Parque with different trees and flowers typical from Colombia. I went on my own and spent a good 2 hours roaming around and just sitting by the river. Went on a Monday...More
