Lovely place to stroll and escape from the city. No orchids in bloom when we were there but in season they should be delightful.

The gardens are free, which was nice. More trees and plants than flowers, but still pretty. Very peaceful, relaxing and well maintained. Beautiful spot for a picnic or just a nice walk. The restaurant is decent, as well.

This tax payer park is free to the public, which is nice. There is some good information on some of the local plants in the area (much of it in Spanish but there are English translations sometimes) and the restaurants are good (In Situ). However...More

While not the most impressive botanical gardens that I've seen, this is a great afternoon activity to rest, explore, and take in nature in the middle of Medellin. Also, it's super close to the Explora and other key cultural places in Medellin. Be sure to...More

My family visited last year with two girls aged 6 and 9. They absolutely loved this place and all the wildlife around. We were here during the flower festival so the main squares were alive with various flower displays. This is the best time to...More

Just next to the Universidad Metro Station there is this botanical garden, which is very much worth to be visited. When coming by car, there is a parking garage at the Carrera 51d (shopping mall). The park access is free and with a good cam...More

We went here one afternoon and though it's a nice park, we were a bit underwhelmed. Maybe it was off season (February) but almost all of the interesting parts were closed off. Check if things are open before you go!

Jardin Botanico, is just a nice place for a stroll, however it isn't much of a "botanical garden" It just looked like a regular park to me. It is located around barrios, which are more ghetto areas in Medellin. Just be careful of your surroundings,...More

According to the rules they ask you to leave your pets at home, so I would say no. There are however several feral cats that we saw lounging around, but these were not pets. I can't post the link here but if you go to the... More
