El Gato starts a promenade through intervened sculptures of female cats aside the river. It is a very particular spot in Cali but I would say it is worthy to complement with a walk around both sides of the river. Many people go there to jog and if your plan is not about working out you can enjoy a tasty... More

Very scenic short, easy walk along the river with cat sculptures decorated in imaginative ways - each with a sign telling you about the design. Many large trees providing shade.

It is a nice walk and fun to look at the cats. It is iconic, but will not take up much time. I suggest grabbing empanadas and champus across the street afterwards!

The cats are lovely and the fact that every sculpture has their meaning or reason to be is so cute. Totally recomended

We walk around the river to exercise and find this to be the best part of our hike. This makes up one of the most symbolic places in a Ali and it has many painted cats in a path that is clean and puts a smile on your face.

If it's a Nice day out, this can be an option for you. You can walk down the river by looking at all the cat sculptures. At the same time, you'll find a few restaurants along the way that you can stop and enjoy a meal. Or just buy an ice cream or a juice, and have it on the... More

When I went there were around 15 other cat sculptures that had been decorated by Colombian artists that added to the fun. It's a small, river-side park that can be seen pretty quickly.

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!
