#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.

    Ideal for children. A safe and quiet place in the middle of the Center. To hang out and eat something while touring the Center.

    We went to the Park on a city tour. First make you walk barefoot through the stone and then go to a kind of "jacuzzipara foot", where massages are more than comforting. Different and fun experience

    Is not having a great plan, the Barefoot Park is really nice but little enocionante. On susu beginnings strolled barefoot across the Park, got your feet to the sources of water and sand. There are so many kids using them as a pool, aue is something aucio and I do not recommend. But if you animate time to visit it, is free and is close to the metro, the alpujarra, warehouses, hollow, plaza botero

    You can walk with your bare feet on sand and put them into the water to relax. Kids can play with the water fountain and you call visit the water museum.

    This is a great place to chill, that's it! Come here to grab a bite, and then take your shoes off to walk through the sand and grass to stay in touch with our mother nature and the earth's vibrations. There's free wi-fi from Medellin Digital.
