The Simon Bolivar Central Park

The story of Simon Bolivar Central Park dates back to year 1968 when the current land stage air mass was held as part of the visit of Pope Paul VI to Colombia.

The management visionary mayors like Jorge Gaitan Cortez and Virgilio Barco Vargas, allowed to separate about 400 acres as green space and recreational long-term (including current Los Novios, Salitre, Children's Museum, Sports Complex and building COLDEPORTES National, among others), thanks to which Bogotá today has a beautiful and large park named Metropolitan of El Libertador.

To mark the arrival of the Pope to Bogota in 68 was built called Eucharistic Temple, which survives today as part of the geography of the scene, witness the important event and benchmark for the adequacy of the other works .

Legally, the park was born according to Law 31 of 1979 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the birth of Bolivar to be held four years later, what was left adequate time for the construction of the new park.

The first stage of this was delivered on July 22, 1983 with the completion of the ceremonial plaza as known today (now Square events), with capacity for 80,000 spectators and the planting of 3,300 trees and artificial lighting.

Another turning point in the configuration of the Central Simon Bolivar was the arrival of 1986 with the country of Pope John Paul II, as the style of his predecessor, held another giant opencast liturgical act in the premises of the park.

More About South America

South America makes up the southern half of the Americas and a large part of Latin America. It's home to the world's longest mountain range, biggest waterfall and largest river -- even these mammoths pale in comparison to the stunning variety of life forms thriving in the rainforest. To the northwest, off the coast of Ecuador, lie the Galapagos Islands, which are unique for hosting species not found anywhere else on earth. These were the subject of study for Charles Darwin in his theory of evolution, which he himself said will require proof in every single case. The main languages in South America are Spanish and Portugese, which basically tells you which European countries colonized the place. The South American wars of independence took place over two decades in the early 19th century, led by Simon Bolivar of Venezuela and Jose san Martin of Argentina. Following liberation from Portugal and Spain, South America took off into its own development, capitalizing on the rich deposits of oil, gold, copper, silver and tango musicians. Brazil is the largest country in South America and home to one of the world's best parties, Carnaval. Have you heard of samba music? How about bossa nova? Maybe dancing for three days straight? I can't say enough good things about South America. All the world's continents have amazing secrets and treasures laying in wait for your discovery, but in South America... just have a look at our pictures while you're waiting for online confirmation of your plane tickets to hit your inbox.Text by Steve Smith.
