  • It is a park (which in Argentina llamamo square) which is slightly away from the center of Medellín (blocks no longer). Calls the attention by the tranquility that has what invites to visit it for rest of the visit to foot to the center of the city.

  • It is a unique space in Medellin, no doubt some recommend it to go have a coffee or a drink in one of the buildings icons of the famous architect Felipe Uribe de Bedut. This project arose as counter proposal to the request of EPM of renew and expand the area of parking located opposite the building smart, property of the group. The site was semi-abandoned about 3 hectares, bordered by major roads and area connected to cultural, historical, and institutional buildings of the city. The Centre administrative the Alpujarra is located to few meters, although without good connection pedestrian. Not is by putting me ñoño, but in my opinion this is the project of renewal urban of the capital Antioquia more important after the metro cable and the Park explores.

  • Good plan for families, you can rest of everything, share with your family and friends, enjoy the nature and you can stay without shoes in the sand zone or the tree zone too. Recommended for resting on afternoons.
  • Un lugar hermoso, cuenta con un recorrido guiado gratuito que te permitirá conocer el verdadero sentido del porque es el parque de los pies descalzos.
  • It seems like a nice place to chill and relax if when you are not surrounded by loud kids!
  • A place to stay relaxed, have a good conversation or just read book.
  • Great little park to relax in for a little while. Sit down with a book or just chat with a friend.
