  • It is a very trees path with good places to eat. The Riverwalk is very nice and pleasant for walking and appreciating Tejada cats

  • Hernando Tejada donated a bronze cat-shaped sculpture and the "brides" that are images adorn them from cats painted by great artists of colombia. There beside the river surrounded by restaurants, bars and karaokes you can feel the Cali evening breeze, the sound of the river that runs through the city of Cali and a beautiful twist of trees in where you can take beautiful photographs, this site is handy to hotels emblematic and hostels that complement along with restaurants in the area, the best places to watch the sunset in Cali.

  • Jack roof was built by Hernando Tejada and is located on the banks of the river Cali. It is a very nice sculpture and is surrounded of their cats.

  • When one statue of a cat was erected to watch over the river the Caleños couldn't stop themselves from placing a cat harem behind it to keep the original happy. Original artwork and a Cali classic. Worth the 5 minute walk through a wonderful park on the north side of Cali close to San Antonio.
  • Beautiful park full of cat sculptures. Very worthwhile place for great pictures.
  • It is what it is, a park with cat statues. It's worth seeing but isn't a bucket list place.
  • It's a park filled with cat sculptures. On one hand it's as lame as it sounds. But on the other hand the whimsical artist experiment is charming and interesting if you can read the signs that are, understandably, only in Español. The hell-raiser cat is definitely fun, just don't trip and fall into it. The surrounding area is awesome and the ice cream shop across the street is excellent.
  • Fun to walk and see all the cats. Doesn't take more than 15-20 minutes
