Parque de los Deseos - Park of the Wishes in Medellin, Colombia
Parque de los Deseos, or Park of the Wishes, is a lovely public park in downtown Medellin, Colombia. Home to a planetarium and the House of Music, the Parque de los Deseos is very near the University of Antioquia, Medellin's fantastic Botanical Garden, the Explore Park (outdoor interactive fun), North Park (a Coney Island-like midway and amusement park) and the aquarium. Saturdays, see free open-air movies and sit in on discussions with film directors; any day, toss coins in the wishing pool and tiptoe across reflecting pools on walkways... peaceful and pretty. Universidad Metro stop.
