Parque de los Fundadores - City Park Villavicencio - Colombia

On Saturday and Sunday afternoons, local families hang out at the Parque Los Fundadores, on the south side of Villavicencio. The masterpiece of the park is the Monumento a los Fundadores, which is the last work executed by renowned Colombian sculptor Rodrigo Arenas Betancourt. In the center of the park is a fountain with lights playing off its cascades. Between are several small plazas where you can catch street theater or comedy, enjoy a fresh juice, have your photo taken on a horse or buy artisanal work. If the excitement wears you out, stretch out on the expanses of grass and relax. The park is not considered safe after dark; it is best to go when villavos go: over the weekend.

Getting There

To get to Parque Los Fundadores, catch a bus that says “Porfía” from the corner of Parque del Hacha of Carrera 32 and Calle 35a, near the fire station.

Travel Tips:

The park is not considered safe after dark or at “solitary” times. It is best to go when Villavos go, over the weekend.

Parque Lineal is a green space on the median of the road leading out of town to Puerto López that begins just past the Unicentro shopping mall and leads to Parque Klos Fundadores.

For both of these there is an entry charge. From the fire station you can also catch buses for these parks.
