  • Really nice park. I came here during Ciclovia on Sunday and then chilled out on the grass and had a wander around.  more »
  • A great place to have an amazing time in Bogotá. It’s really big with a whole bunch of activities to do and enjoy the nature in the middle of the city.  more »
  • The park is having a huge lake surrounded by grass and trees. The place seems safe and nice to relax. Also it helps to forget about the dirty parts of Bogota.  more »

  • Beautiful spacious park. Best during the week days as there are less people and less crowded. There are bunch of activities to do here. Best to go on a bike because it is so big you can easily spend the whole entire day walking all of it. I enjoy this park so much. There are also big events that are for free here.
  • Great oasis in the middle of Bogota. Good for most outdoor activities like walking, biking, roller skating. There is a small pound where they rent small boats. It is the perfect place to get away from the chaos of the city and relax. Lots of greenery, great for a picnic.
  • Its a amazing park. Its so big and its perfect for walking and running. Also, you can find a good fruits and other type of foods.
  • An amazing Metropolitan Park! The nature, he lake and the facilities are easily enjoyable. If you want to do sports is better in between the week during morning hours.
  • Awesome to have such an expansive greenspace for walking, biking, playing. The lake is surprisingly big and clean. My only disappointment was that the cafés were mostly fast-food (junk food) except for a couple of fruterías.
