The full name of the Botanical Garden is Jadín Botánico del Medellín Joaquin Antonio Uribe. It is named after an Antioquian botanist. The garden was founded in 1972 and has over 600 species of trees and other plants. There is a lovely lake with water lilies and turtles. There is also a small open-air auditorium where sometimes orchestra concerts are held. You can also have something to eat in the restaurant or buy something in the shop (I found many nice things but didn?t buy anything in the end). In Mach - April you can see a display of orchids in the Orquideorama. It is a relaxing place away from the city traffic.
The Botanical Garden is open between 9 - 17 every day of the week and there was no admission (July 2008).
Address: Carrera 52 No 73 - 182
Directions: The Botanical Garden is situated in the north part of Medellín, close to the metro stop Universidad.
