The park is very large and beautiful. Lots of people fly kites and other winged objects there. Also not bad birding at the lake.

It is a big park, good for families/ couples. There are couple of food stalls outside the entrance, and a big pond in the center of the park.

This was my second time here in Bogotá and learned about this park. My husband and I went there to spend the day and it was very wonderful. I enjoyed this place. It is very quiet and you can come along with family and friends.

Came here with a friend to kill some time before a flight - the park was beautiful to walk around and seemed like there was a lot to do, such as rent paddle boards or boats.
