This small well-preserved garden is a good choice if you are looking for a quiet and nice place before lunch. You can hire a bicycle at the design shopping in Plaza Francia and ride across all the parks to there ( there is a cycle path all the way down). The restaurant inside is a good choice too, all sushi... More

This is the one of the good places to visit in BA. Unfortunately, the charges are very high as compare to the area of the garden and the kind of attractions they have inside. If you like to visit gardens, then you will love it for sure.

We went on a Tuesday, knowing that the entrance would be free.The lady at the ticket office charged us anyway. I mentioned that I thought it was free on Tuesdays so she asked for our ages, we are seniors so she let us in free. The Garden itself is very beautiful. It is not big but just beautiful and peaceful... More

We haven been to Japan last year and I will not compare it to the wabi-sabi quality over there, but I have also visited Portland's Japanese Gardens which were way nicer. There were plastic bags in the pond, the grass was not cut well and not really a high diversity. It definetly lacks the Japanese refinements and for 50 pesos... More

There are so many special, uniquely Argentine places to go in BA that I consider a visit here a wasit of time and money. It isn;t very big, and not very interesting. Go to Rosedahl down the road, for free, and see not only a gorgeous roase garden, but also portenos doing their thing.

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.
