Cool and interesting

These statues are very unusual and unique. Each has their own story and design. Fascinating to look at, even if it only takes 10 minutes!

The park is nice. But the grass is in bad maintenance. The sculptures are cool. And funny for photos. A representative park of the city since it is cross by the cali river

You can walked along the river watching the different cats statues at a slow pace enjoying the view and the wind, there's bars near by and places to visit after you finish looking at the statues.

These caleños love their cats here. Around the riverfront, there are a series of cat statues that represent the Valle de Cauca and Cali culture. The most famous and most postcard-esque statue is the Gato de Tejada. It is in Barrio Peñon which is very nice with plenty of restaurants nearby.

Located in the most beautiful setting of Cali, almost in front of the Museum of Art La TERTULIA the sculpture of this beautiful cat was a gift that a Caleño artist made to his hometown. The place is surrounded by trendy cafés and bars that offer excellent service. Definitely worth seeing

This copper kitten spent 10 years at the park on his own, then received 19 female companions as a reward. It's constantly being maintained so you probably won't be able to see all the female kittens, but "gata cálida" is definitely a must- see, as she represents the personality of the Cali people.

Nestled in a nice barrio, the park features huge trees and a great sense of what makes Cali Cali. Very enjoyable place for a nice long walk. Many street vendors and lots of nice restaurants nearby
