  • I love the new restructuring, helps a lot to make it look and feel more enjoyable. Bothers me a bit that pumps for celebrations may not be inflated, but I understand the reasons. It is a space for contact with nature and above all to enjoy in family, friends, couple, no matter if you have large or small children... It is a cool space for any

  • This is not a must in Medellin. It is a nice walk, but I would definitely consider other places nearby instead like Park Explora or the Planetarium. 
  • Botanical Garden is about 10 minutes by car from the Center, is free, only pay entrance drive and is per hour, but very economic. It is not a very big place, but if it is well maintained, the bamboo area is wonderful! An incredible peace is breathed, there are different areas to explore, the Center is the area of orchids with a stunning wooden architecture, unfortunately could not see them, why wasn't the time that bloom but the visit is interesting. It is a place where go the people of Medellin to make picnic type, there is sale of plants and flowers, consists of a small lake and some animals can be seen. They told me that before had Anteaters but you have time that do not appear, hurts why me I would like to get to know them. If it is to know the place by tourism takes an hour going around about it and enjoy the place!
