Parque el Virrey, Bogota

4.7
#8 of 33 in Outdoors in Bogota
Outdoor Activity
Riddled with a network of bike and pedestrian paths, the linear park and ecological corridor of Parque el Virrey protects the ravine that runs parallel to it. Walkers, cyclists, and four-legged friends often fill the long, narrow park, where you'll also find benches and drinking fountains. A recreational area includes cardio equipment, strength training, and a playground. High-impact sports such as football, however, are prohibited. The quiet park offers a peaceful, green retreat in the middle of the city. See Parque el Virrey and all Bogota has to offer by arranging your trip with our Bogota vacation builder.

  • The Park is extremely pleasant. Very Woody and peaceful environment. In the morning there are many people doing exercise.

  • It is one of the best parks in Bogotá, ideal for exercise, get the dog or simply walk, sit and eat an ice cream. During the year various fairs they do, my favorite is to feed you. Super recommended. And super recommended Park to unwind a bit from the noise of the city, without leaving the city.

  • It's actually a square well cared for and well frequented by locals. Great for a late afternoon and rest in the cafeteria or the surrounding bars.

  • Very nice place to chill out and relax. It is near to Virrey station (trasmilenio). By the 15th career, there is the Edgar Negret's sculpture. It is safe due to the Police station (CAI). Nice place to go.
  • Family friendly. There are great restaurants for brunch or dinner. Also a good place to haghout with friends.
  • It is a nice place because I met my wife there. What else can I say?
  • Cool park to walk around and just relax. Very dog friendly.
  • Suitable for outdoor exercise. Many doogs around. Nice and clean.

Where to stay in Bogota

Many visitors to Bogota stay in La Candelaria, a colonial-era neighborhood in the city center where you can find plenty of decent hostels and mingle with tourists from around the globe. Staying in this area also puts you within walking distance of the city's major museums and best nightlife options. If you prefer to sleep in a quieter area and visit this busy district during the day, consider accommodations in the northern section of the city, which includes the upscale neighborhood Zona T.
