Lush and peaceful.

A nicer getaway from the sounds of the city. Very calm with paths meandering through the gardens and as number of water elements.

In this place I met certain plants I only knew from the books, many of them are tagged... I like that, and also there is some research going on, and resting areas and sometimes cultural events also.

I hired my guide for a few hours my last day in Buenos Aires before departing for my flight home and she suggested we visit this place. It is a shame it was raining but at least it was not cold. It was very quiet in the park which is odd given its location right in the middle of everything.... More

Night garden in the middle of the city. located in a busy area so it is quite noisy and the grounds are not as well kept as the Rose Park, but it is a nice break from the city and a beautiful place to walk for a few hours.

The botanic gardens are off Avenida Santa Fe in Palermo. They are small but have some interesting gardens, including one of the strangest Cacti I have seen in the cactus garden. There are a number of small gardens with statues and plenty of shade so you can escape the traffic and the heat inside. Well worth a restful visit.

Didn't know what to expect but this was a phenomenal find. The gardens are free, easy to get to and provide a really interesting display representing all corners of the world. I would highly recommend this

Jardin Botanico is a perfect break from the City. A short walk from a subte station, free admission. On an early November morning, I strolled there for a couple of hours. Very few other visitors were present, but groups of school children (in doctors' coats!) did show up later. Perhaps on field trips. Tropical flowers were blooming along almost every... More

Worth walking through even if 'closed'. Went on a bank holiday so buildings not open but still lovely and worth seeing.

The way a park should be- lots of trees, many benches to sit and relax, fountains and statues. Reasonable variety of flora. Adjacent to the zoo and to other parks - jardin de Rosas and tres de febrero. The three parks make for wonderful afternoon.

Staying in Palermo

Neighborhood Profile
Palermo
Best known as the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, Palermo is divided into different quarters, each with its own unique identity. The high-end quarter is Palermo Chico, characterized by magnificent mansions, regal avenues, and exclusive apartment buildings, and home to the Museum of Latin American Art of Buenos Aires (MALBA), a favorite amongst locals. The largest park in the city, the Bosques de Palermo, is Palermo's most famous landmark and a popular destination for nature walks, picnics, rollerblading, and cycling. The scene becomes much trendier in Palermo Soho, a hip area known for its cool cafés and unique design stores, filled with shoppers on weekends; and Palermo Hollywood, renowned for the numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs, which make it the preferred spot for nights out and special occasions.
