This park is the most beautiful green area of the city. Easily accessible by bus or car, this beautiful park was designed by French landscaper Carlos Thays (1849-1934), on the lands of the former ranch of Juan Manuel de Rosas. For those who have visited Paris, this park is a bit reminiscent in part of the Bois de Boulogne, but... More

Great place, gets cleaned regularly, got lots of space, has a zoo, a planetarium and the rosedal and a lot of things nearby that are good too. Very green, also has a lake (not sure if it's clean; certainly not swimable) where there are ducks. There is a bike track, where people go around in bikes, do tricks with skates... More

These beautiful decorated parks and gardens are the paradise for visitors to rest and spend leisure time outside, especially during the sunny weekends (do not forget to use sunblocks!!!). It's a great place for family walks, meditation and contemplation of nature. There are three beautiful artificial lakes within the park and many gardens. Jardin Botanico Carlos Thays (Botanical Garden) with... More

The Bosques of Palermo is a great place to simply relax,and escape all the noise and traffic of Buenos Aires. It's particularly pleasant to come here during the week. I just loved the rose gardens.

One of the highlights of our 6-week stay in Buenos Aires were the parks in Palermo. Scarcely, a day went by when we did not work through one of the parks that seems to extend for 5 miles or so from Recoleta to Belgrano. We probably spent at least 15 days in the Rose Garden literally smelling the roses and... More

Bosques de Palermo are a group of parks in the neiborhood of the same name. These parks are huge, and are a must to visit when in BA. There are lakes where you can rent boats, feed the ducks, picnic, go jogging, etc. Is a great place for outdoors activities. The view is breathtaking, one of the best in BA

This magnificent and vast park is located in the Palermo district, along the Rio de la Plata. It includes many features such as the hippodrome, the botanical garden, a planetarium, tennis clubs, lakes, etc. It is a great place for doing sports, jogging, skating, etc. or having picnic or take the sun with friends or with a family.

This is the local take urban parks like in your home country. Each seeks something different and deals with different climatic and urban environments. Los Bosques has a bit of something for everyone and on the weekends and holidays of Spring, Summer, and Fall, it is well used by the porteños of Buenos Aires. Closed to automotive traffic during weekends... More

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.
