This is a park where you can test your senses by walking barefoot thru various mediums - sand, earth, water. It is really nothing special - especially in the pouring rain!!! There are cafes and restaurants there as well as toilets!

Modern,well organized space to relax and enjoy. The bamboo meditation park a bit hurts when attempted barefooted. There are benches to sit and rest. A lot of space covered with cement and brick but with nice practical design in mind.Overall it is zen-inspired public park....More

It was interesting but in my opinion there are many other sites to see in Medellin that are much better. If you are not pinched for time then go see it but don't trade this for another site you know is really good.

Nice park to stroll around and bring the kids. Unfortunately, there is a small parque where we walked through where there were a lot of couples almost having sex, which was kind of inappropriate considering the kids walking around.

If you and your kids are dehydrated and need to run around, this is THE place for that. Free, accessible, huge sandbox. There are vendors selling fruit, water, ice cream and juice all over the place. Kids love it and adults get to relax.

Not designed for tourists but for local workers so no signage but an interesting place showing the radical ideas forming modern Medellin
