Parque Ciudad del Rio

A huge old factory was demolished to create this long beautiful central park in Medellin. Stretching several city blocks with views of large buildings and Medellin hillsides, Parque Ciudad del Rio has a lot to do within it.

There are many urban sculptures of various types, a very popular and high quality skatepark, a small rock climbing wall, as well as many shady and grassy spots to relax or have a picnic.
