Parque Gallineral, San Gil

(3.8/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
The town's centerpiece, Parque Gallineral is an urban forest with a mystical atmosphere. Set on a triangular island between two rivers, the park offers 4 hectares (10 acres) of hiking routes through lush vegetation and across flowing rapids on attractive, secluded bridges. Adding much to the feel of the place, drooping arms of silvery moss hang from the branches of the trees, catching the light and creating an otherworldly sight. Relax after a long walk with a swim at the pool or grab some refreshments from the onsite restaurants and cafes.

  • We wandered, ate icecreams and read our books in the shade. There are two swimming pools - one for kids and one for adults.It's not a park to jog in - just brick paths and lots of trees. 
  • A place to learn about the Sangilena culture and some Colombian myths. Suitable to go to pool, walking in the nature, take is a beer and relax is in the half of a city.

  • As impressive trees and the River, great. Entrance fee varies. When we visited the Park had some closed areas since the River had grown. But it was worth it. Sell some juice delicious.
