The Gato de Tejada is grand and impressive and one of the more iconic pieces of public art in Cali. The wives of the cat are also impressive and a wide array of interpretations. It was a fun visit.

Not a fan of cats but a fan of good art. The Omar Roya graphic cat was fun. Also 7 lives cat. Found other cats in other parks later in the weekend.

A park with cat statues. Ok, for a stroll through if you’ve got a free afternoon, but I wouldn’t go out of my way to see it, unless you absolutely love cat statues.

I didn't get to see all of the cats but there are many stretched along the Blvd that are worth seeing. There are plenty of shops and the night life is full of adrenaline. Worth walking the path to see them.

You want to walk along the river and see the famous Gato de Tejadas. Like the cows in Chicago or the hearts in San Francisco, the "cats" of tejada not only carry the special stories of their artists but help explain Cali.

A fun hour browsing the nice grounds where these cats are displayed along the Rio Cali. The cats are really beautiful and all different and unique. A nice thing to do while in Cali. You can only get there by walking.
