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

Spent an afternoon enjoying the greenery under the shelter of a tree. It is great for relaxing and has many benches around. Just grab a book and a sandwich and spend a lovely afternoon here.

Buenos Aires is so very big with what seems an infinite number of people and cars that finding great green spaces is very important. This garden area is very convenient and well worth some time to relax away from the crowds and noise of this bustling city.

Although this is not a big garden, it has some nice plantings, some that we've actually never seen anywhere else for that matter. The area/neighbourhood of Palermo is great, so the gardens can be a nice part of your day in Palermo. The fountains are ok, but they could be cleaner... The many benches and shaded areas make it ideal... More
