“Okay, but unexpected”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

This park was a bit disappointing. I read all of the reviews here on tripadvisor, but I felt misled.

When we arrived, we saw a giant sand box with a water spray park. I was expecting a park for adults with different sights. However, this is just a park for kids to play in for the afternoon.

If you have a lot of time in Medellin, check it out. If you're on a short trip, skip it.

“Public Plaza With Water Games”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

One of Medellin's great public plazas - beautifully designed to improve the quality of life of the city's residents. Highlights of this plaza include several mini-pools and fountains in which children can play and cool off.

“A Zen experience in Medellin?”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

"Whaattt", I asked?

Bamboo gardens, barefoot paths filled with different sized pebbles to massage your feet, balance challenges along the way and a final jacuzzi massage of your tired feet on completion?

We are where? Medellin Colombia? Ok, I don't buy it but lets go anyway.

It was more than I expected and the guides were great in helping us along the path to...well, the jacuzzi massage at the end was the best part. The pebbles actually hurt a little but I have soft feet from never going barefoot.

Put on your to do list when visiting Medellin. Only takes an hour or two. You can always have a coffee at the nearby Le Bons Cafe if you don't want to abuse your feet on the pebbles.

“One of the most Overwhelming spaces I have ever seen.”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

The parque Pies Descalzos was developed by a private company of Medellin for their employees to snjoy the park during their lunch time or fre time and it has become one of the most sough after spaces in medellin, Where you may walk barfoot in the stones, bmaboo, water and other areas of the park. It isa unique and I have never seen anything like it in the world.
