Bare Foot Park (Parque de los Pies Descalzos), Medellin

4.0
#5 of 17 in Parks in Medellin
Relax and play at Bare Foot Park (Parque de los Pies Descalzos), designed according to Zen-inspired principles. Opened in 2000, the park was conceived by architect Felipe Uribe de Bedout and features green spaces with tall bamboo plants, a sand area, and many water fountains. Feel free to take off your shoes when walking around the park and playing in the fountains, which remain alternative activities to actually exploring wilder regions and dipping into streams in distant rural areas. Plan my Medellin trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
