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

Went to the Garden today with my girlfriend. We were seated on a bench with lots of other people around. We were "pooped" on by a bird, or so we thought. A lot later we realised that it was a mud like mixture. Just as it happened, a fairly small, innocent looking man of about 55 years was walking past.... More

If you are in the Palermo area or heading to the Museo Eva take a walk through this very traditional botanical garden. Very well maintained and lots of varied plants and trees and lots of statuary. Well maintained and secure.

A beautiful park next to the Plaza Italia Zoo. It is the perfect place for a beautiful day. The park contains gorgeous sculptures throughout and filled with a breathtaking scenery. Need a place to get away and relax? Take a quick Subte ride (D line) to Plaza Italia and you are at the Jardin Botanico! Bring friends or a significant... More
