This is a nice pleasant green oasis in he city next to the zoo. There.are some nice statues. As botanic garden go,I didn't think all that much of it. Yes, the trees are labeled with the botanic names, but there is no discussion of the flora of Argentina/Patgonia. Didnt think it was particularly pretty or well kept. Easy to skip.

I came here to walk around and take a look at the gardens, which are lovely, but my favorite part was finding a shady bench and resting my feet while my eyes took in all the beautiful greenery. It'd be even nicer if they opened all the gates, or even more than one of the gates, so that you could... More

After days of walking through busy thoroughfares and visiting monuments, churches, museums and numerous stores it was wonderful to spend time in this green oasis. In the centre of the gardens the sound of traffic almost dissappears. Easily reached by taking the D line subway to Plaza Italia. As of January 2015 the subway fare is 5 pesos and entry... More

I love botanical gardens in cities. It's such a relief to step away from the busy streets and wander through shade trees and flowers. The garden in Buenos Aires is very pleasant, easy to wander through in an hour. It's also right next door to the zoo, so you can made a morning of it and see both.

It's not very big, and not very well maintained but it's still nice to just walk by when going places. It's nothing fancy, don't get me wrong! It's Argentina so don't expect something glamorous.

It was nice to see a botanical garden that actually labels their plants. Statues throughout the park with most stating who/what. All in Latin/Spanish, but my wife speaks Spanish. Even on a hot day, the shady trees in the park will protect you. The greenhouses are not for entering and about 10% of the park was closed for renovations. We... More

This place typifies Argentina; they do the hard work (i.e. collecting and laying out this large garden) and then fail to maintain it. There is a HUGE selection of trees and plants, mostly labelled and laid out in various and logical plots. Yet the greenhouse has its glass in the roof missing, the paths are a mess and uneven and...

A 4/5 (instead of 3/5) simply because it's a free attraction. It is a nice relaxing green garden with sculptures and shelter from the traffic and noise. I'd say it's worth a visit if you are within a 20 block radius, but I wouldn't go out of your way unless you're a big fan of sculpture and gardens.

It´s a very nice place to be in hot day in BA! Lots of trees from all over the world, Africa, Asia, Sudamerica, etc. Lots of green grass, benches and free space to organise a small picnic. If you just walk and look around it could take around 1 hour, but I strongly recommend to bring a blanket and book... More
