The park is beautiful but a bit expensive. If you go swimming make sure you take a swim cap or they will hit you up for another 3.000 Pesos for a shower cap and ask you to wear it in the pool.

So beautiful and relaxing. Cost 6000 pesos to enter. Bring your bathing suit to swim in the pool after exploring the park!

*$6.000 entry fee* A large park close to town ideal for an easy stroll around. Giant old trees are covered in long tendrils of moss and host red squirrels and black vultures.

So, maybe we should have asked some questions at the entrance but we thought, when we were charged 6,000COP at the entrance, that it included access to the pool. Nope! We had to pay an extra 4,000 to use the pool and also another 4,000...More

I'm not sure if the night time lights display is just during the Christmas holiday season, but it was a fun added element to an otherwise pleasant park with several interesting attractions. I recommend entering the park around 5 pm so you can experience it...More

This is an odd little park, and pricey too - 10,000 pesos and 2,000 to buy a swimming cap. The strange installations around the park looked like an overhang from Halloween. The pool is refreshing and clean.

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.

It's a nice park. A good way to spend a couple spare hours in San Gil. It's definitely not a 'must-do' but it's good for larger groups where not everyone wants to bungee jump or river raft (there's a lot of extreme sports in San...More
