First let’s talk about the parks, in the 72 street you can find Quinta Camacho. This is a passage fill with trees, seats and grass where workers from the area gather to take a break from his workdays.
Now, going south you can find El Parque de los Hippies or Hippie’s Park. This place is bigger than the last one and gets this particular name for the amount of college students who spent time there, they even choose the park to practice some artistic activities.
Besides, this natural zones are all connected by bike ways. Alternative transport is a way to help the environment that Bogota also support and going through the more important streets and roads of Chapinero this bike ways are a perfect help to move daily in a better form.
Lastly, the eastern hills surround the city and supply it with fresh air. In the recent time people have created natural trails that goes through the forest of this hills and serve as a tour so you can get to know waterfalls and viewpoints of the area.
