A beautiful stroll through this park is a terrific way to spend an afternoon. Amazingly cool trees from all over the world. Nice places to sit and rest in the shade.

We hung out with the geese and walked through the statues of famous poets and the rose garden. Very serene and beautiful in the middle of a large city. Better signage would have helped us navigate the park more easily, and we started at the Planetario de Galileo Galilei, which was closed for renovations. Would have been great if any... More

This was one of my favourite parks in the city. It's truly beautiful and well kept. You could walk around originally just find a quiet bench and watch the world go by.

Visited the park as part of a days tour of Buenos Aires. There are fountains, statues and lakes. Great for a quiet stroll in the bustle of a big city. And so well cared for !

I've been to several gardens like this but I have to say this easily moved to the top three. It's an oasis in a very busy city nearly surrounded by a lake (yes you can take a pedal boat) filled with statues, lush grass and the biggest variety of roses I've seen. If you are in Palermo you are only... More

Staying in Recoleta

Neighbourhood Profile
Recoleta
Characterised by the French-style mansions which are the legacy of its aristocratic past, Recoleta is the true “Paris of the South.” Walking around this neighbourhood is an experience like no other in Buenos Aires: its streets are lined with elegant apartment buildings, exclusive boutiques, and former mansions turned into high-end hotels and embassies, which exude an alluring air of sophistication and class. You'll also find a rich cultural scene centred on the National Museum of Fine Arts, the National Library, and the Recoleta Cultural Center; as well as some great shopping spots, like the Buenos Aires Design Mall with an artists' fair set up in Plaza Francia every weekend.
