On the positive side it is free to enter and it offers the opportunity for some peace and tranquility away from the city. However, it is not particulary big and there is not a lot of information (the only signs are in Spanish). If you are in the area though you may as well go in to take a break.

Although it is located between two main traffic arteries, the botanic gardens offer a shady green space to get away from the noise and busyness of the city. Large stone sculptures are nestled among the labeled trees and plants. Numerous greenhouses are filled with plants from various parts of the world. The butterfly garden drew me in ~ it was... More

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...

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.
