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

3.9
#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.

  • Just a small park to take a bite and relax while you wait for the EPM "Water Museum". Kids love to be bared foot and play around.  more »
  • Beautiful park that the city gives tourists and especially children to make lots of fun.

  • The internet promises to be an innovative experience, wonderful. But getting there you discover that it's just a public park. Trees, playground, benches, etc. The big news is stepping on gravel and a shallow pool with concrete floor and piped water. Anything beyond that. Not worth moving there.

  • Great place in the middle of the town. Perfect to have some rest and walk on yhe sand without shoes or soak you up with the water-ish playground. Playful place to have a picnic with your friends. Free bicycles available in the surroundings.
  • Cool for kids but wouldn't recommend it highly for turists because there is not much to do.
  • The sand is not that soft. Nice architecture in the buildings around.
  • Interesting idea, with several places dedicated to different experiences directed by local guides. Kids will have fun! Some restaurants of decent quality around it
  • Awesome place to come and take a rest. Kick off your shoes and walk in the sand. Then give your feet anice cool soak in the water.
