Telemedellin Canal Parque
Telemedellin is a regional channel in Medellin providing varied programming, including news and educational programs. Their headquarters, Canal Parque Gabriel Garcia Marquez, is located in a large wooded area. This place is accessible to the public as a park.
The site, located in El Poblado, is a natural area surrounded by trees, shade, wooden paths, small ponds full of fish. Plus, there are even games for your little ones.
The Canal Parque is the perfect place to spot the birds and animals inhabiting the natural areas of the city, such as opossums. The area also has a wealth of plant life and is a great area to take your dog for a long walk.
Keep in mind that your dog must be leashed everywhere but the Maria dos Prazeres Dog Park, where you can let them off leash to meet some new canine friends!
The Canal Parque truly has everything and is easy to get to, especially if you’re staying in the south of the city.
Also located in El Poblado, the Parque Lineal la Presidenta is known as the green heart of the area, thanks to its large amount of vegetation and trees.
La Presidenta is a large path crossed by pedestrian paths and bridges. The beautiful Quebrada Lan Presidenta waterfall gives the park a fresh and natural touch amidst the traffic and pollution of city life.
This tranquil spot is a lovely place for a dog walk, and I’m sure you’ll meet fellow animal lovers walking their furry friends as well.
The best thing about the park is that it doesn’t take you around in circles like other smaller parks. You can go from one corner to another for some good exercise.
Another one of the park’s attractions, in addition to its close location for those staying in El Poblado, is that there is a cafe and restaurants with outdoor tables located by the entrance to the park if you work up an appetite on your walk!
If you’ve traveled with your pet to Medellín, the last thing you have to worry about is finding parks for both of you to enjoy your time in the city. So don’t hesitate to hit the city and start walking!
