Jardín Botánico de Medellín - City Park Medellín - Colombia

Considered the lungs of Medellín, the Jardín Botánico Joaquín Antonio Uribe is a delightfully leafy and tranquil destination within the confines of the bustling city. The verdant wealth contained within the garden’s 14 hectares (2.5 ac) ranges from a spectacular orchid collection (the country’s national flower) to flora found throughout Colombia.

The garden’s emphasis is on ecology, education and entertainment. Schools frequently bring students here to expose them to the importance of environmental preservation, and researchers regularly visit the garden’s library. Concerts are often performed in the garden as well, so be sure to check listings.Catch the metro to the Universidad station and follow the signs.
