The Lilí River Corridor is one of the parks of the sirirí route, a series of parks that make up a biological corridor in the city of Cali. The Lilí River Corridor is located in the neighborhood garden city south of city, and is characterized by having a Bikeway whereby visitors can have a good time walking or doing a bit of exercise and appreciating the native species (among which are owls, squirrels, opossums, woodpeckers, guatines, bichofues, iguanas, mule ants, and countless more birds in the area).
As a curious fact, this corridor is surrounded by a series of residential units that were built in what in past years was known as the polo field, which is why it is an area that despite the urbanization it has had, maintains a great park for its residents.
The day we visited the park it was perfect weather, there was moderate sun, which allowed us to do the tour walking and appreciating the surroundings without suffocating from the heat in the process.
It was interesting to see the amount of birds that can be seen with the naked eye and heard, while one walks the cycle path. Among the birds that I could identify by their song, the bug was, a nice bird with a yellow breast and a singular song that seems to say precisely “biiiiichooofueeee”, this bird was by the way chosen last year as the official mascot of the world games 2013 that were held in the city.
At the end of the trail you can enter the walkways and pedestrian alleys between the residential units, which offer a beautiful view of the area, as well as an additional level of difficulty for being headed up the hill to the top of this neighborhood sector.
