Bogotá, Colombia’s capital, is a deceptively green city. Her avenues and streets may suffer from a lack of vegetation and precious little boscage, but one glance up at the pine-covered Cerros Orientales (Eastern Mountains), which create both a natural barrier at this side of the city and an imposing landmark, reminds visitors that the concrete and brick of the urban jungle aren’t far removed from the real jungle.

Bogota is characterized by its intense green coloring; it is a city in which there are parks with natural attractions in its entire extension and its periphery, pure air to breathe, grass and sports fields, zones for games and non mechanical games to enjoy, gardens and lakes to have a good time, animals and plants to observe and get to know. In many of them, there can also be mechanical attractions, especially designed for the different age groups. Other places like these involve a first introduction to science, technology and culture.

Simon Bolivar: this is the largest green extension, as a whole, in the city, which is interrelated with many satellite recreation sites in its surroundings. It has zones of meadows, a great lake where one can navigate on a vessel or in small rowboats; recreation and places for games and an auditorium where plays are presented for children. The Children’s Museum is located nearby, where different activities are developed, led by persons who, before demonstrating that they are guides, they do it as friends.

El Salitre Park (mechanical attractions), the Bride and Groom Park (Parque de Los Novios) and the Botanical Garden also form part of this set.
