This is an area where you can walk, sit, run, bicycle, etc. It is a protected area for flora and fauna. It is right on the river, over the bridge from Puerto Madero and a bit down the road.

I recommend it to all that sportive and family people who want to enjoy a long and good walk around the border of the coast, the staff of the park is really attentive and in good hours of the day it is really safe. I recommend to take with you the less value object and enjoy a simply walk to... More

I was told about this place by a local I met in a coffee shop. Its a nice place to walk around to escape the busy Buenos Aires streets. There wasn't alot of wildlife, but a diverse range of plants. There seem to be a fair few locals jogging and riding bikes in the park. A full lap of the... More

I did not see lots of animals but some people saw a big snake before me. I saw a little colibri and multiple birds.

The ecological reserve "Costanera Sur" is within 10 min walking distance from famous Puerto Madero. Unbelievable, to find such bio-diversity side by side with the modern skyline of that part of Buenos Aires. OK; the reserve gets crowded with people seeking some relief from the noise of BA at the weekends. But you can still enjoy the reserve. Even better,... More

This reserve is free to enter and acts as an oasis in this concrete desert. There are toilets along the way but make sure you bring plenty of water with you on a hot day. It is safe to visit during the day. Oh, and it is simply beautiful

It was nice to walk this trail and to be away from the city. A lot of people go jogging here, so if you are into that you definitely should. Also, if you like birds this should be a good place. We just like to walk for a bit in some place where there was a bit of nature and... More

Very nice park to walk and hang out and especially, to have a nice contrast to the loud and fast citylife. Beautiful environment also for runners. There are some nice greens to rest and enjoy the landscape.

This is a nice and simple park with good views of the river (which is huge and hard to get a perspective on) and also paths to walk or bike on. I saw more locals lounging or exercising than tourists. On Saturday there were a lot vendors with goods and foods. It's relaxing.

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighbourhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighbourhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolise this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
