Nothing spectacular, some nice trees and views which can in fact be viewed in a lot of other places around San Gil and Barichara also. Not really worth the 6000 COP entrance fee, but on the other hand quite cheap if you seek a quick...More

My girlfriend and I spent a lovely couple of hours wandering around and admiring the beautiful foliage. A great place to chill with a book for a couple of hours as a break from other adventures in San Gil.

A lovely park in the centre of town, small entry fee but worth it. Nice cafe and restaurant. Red squirrels, birds and lots of native trees and plants to see. Lovely little pool too.

i love this description of lonely planet: San Gil's showpiece is the mystical Parque El Gallineral, a 4-hectare park set on a triangle-shaped island between two arms of the Quebrada Curití and Río Fonce. Many of the 1900 trees are covered with long silvery tendrils...More

Our visit to Parque Gallineral was a good visit but unfortunately if you go to the bathroom you get a bad impression of the place, doors that do not close and the worst is no toilet paper! not even to buy because the dispenser was...More
