Lovely Japanese gardens, though not particularly large. We visited for an opportunity to take a break from walking in the Recoleta neighborhood. Many benches provided the perfect place to rest. The restaurant serves only Japanese food, but there are a few carts serving ice cream and cold drinks. It seemed a bit pricey for the size of the gardens.

This was a part of a visit to the Botanical gardens. The care and maintenance of these Japanese gardens stand out and give the visitor a feeling for that country's skill in using Nature to create an atmosphere. The various walkways led to hidden delights. Well worth the effort.

This is a nice and organized place. Quite interesting and beautiful to see! I just thought it could be a little bigger. Still is a nice place to see.

Great park and is amazingly well kept. I think it is cleaner than most parks in Paris. The park has a 2-mile track around the outside and is full of locals running, roller-skating, walking, or riding bikes all day long. It is a prime spot to take a run anything during the day. Take a few hours to walk around... More

These historical gardens are well worth a look round if you're in this area of Buenos Aries. They are a delightful interlude, and close to the zoo, planetarium and other attractions. The entrance fee is only about £1.50. Recommended.

What a delight! The garden was introduced to us on a walking tour of the city and we just had to return. Whilst not large in area there is plenty to while away a peaceful hour in the midst of the bustling traffic. The lake is full of koi carp who obviously know that food is available to tourists to...

Beautiful Japanese Gardens in downtown Buenos Aires. It is closeby the city center along the Libertador, next to Rosedal Park. It is worth the visit.. My kids loved to feed the Huge fish in the ponds had a great time. Parking is a hassle as you have to park in the street so if you can go by taxi or... More

Despite the fact that it wasn't free, the visit to this garden was a very pleasant one. Tranquility reigns supreme. And the simplicity of the space is not lost on us city dwellers. The grounds are well kept, clean of litter, and well manicured. And all the classic elements of a Japanese garden are there to bring serenity and joy.

I thought these gardens were much prettier, better kept up than the Jardin Botanico a few blocks away. Of course, here you had to pay 50AR while the other was free. There is a little section of Bonsai plants for sale. I was a little disappointed there was no discussion of Japanese gardens symbolism/formatting in any language. Restaurant was closed... More
