There are many opportunities for entertainment and relaxation in this park, which is as vast as it is charming.
The largest park in Bogota.
Of course, the largest park in the city should be named after the person won independence for Colombia. That's probably what the founders of the Parque Metropolitano Simon Bolivar thought. Thousands upon thousands of Bogota's citizens visit this gigantic space of more than 400 hectares every day. The park was opened in 1979 to commemorate the second centenary of his birth and the site is so vast that it has been divided into several smaller parks: Parque Central Simón Bolívar, Parque el Salitre and Parque de los Novios. As well as beautiful walks among the park's flora and fauna, there are several sections dedicated to sport. There are cycle paths and athletics trails, hiking, football pitches and basketball courts, and more. There are also places for the popular customs of lying in the grass for a rest or throwing a picnic together.
