Parque Simon Bolivar, Bogotá 4

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.
