Paddle boats can be rented. Very quiet specially on week days. Many use the area to go jogging, mornings when weather is fine. Nearby restaurant and... More

Amazing park with great walking space and tons of green space. There is a 2 mile track along the outside for a great run or bike ride, but a walk through the flower garden is great at any time of the day. Locals run and enjoy this park at night. If you want to see hundreds of Argentines out on... More

Very nice place to take the family due to ample space for kids and dogs to play. The adults can drink wine or "mate", the typical Argentinean tea, and eat empanadas (meat pies). In the past, it was permissible to bring a portable grill and cook a barbecue ( "parrillada" in Spanish). I don't know if at present time cooking... More

Palermo has several small green squares where you can see where many Argentinians like to enjoy their free time. Those small parks are always full of people walking their dogs, reading books, meeting friends or playing their instruments. Normally tourists don't even stop to appreciate those places... and miss the opportunity to have at least a small sensation of what... More

Ideal for jogging or enjoy a warm sunny day besides the lakes. Once there don't miss the Panetario and the Japanese Gardens

Going to the parks of Palermo on a weekend is a very nice experience. There are so many Argentinians seizing the day: doing picniks, little shows, or just resting in the lawn. The park itself is beautiful and with plenty of things to do. Don't miss it, with or without kids.

Yesterday, January 6, 2015, was a good day to visit the “Rosdal de Palermo or Paseo del Rosedal”. It was warm and a bit overcast which gave the garden a delightful feeling. I usually walk from Recoleta along “Avenida Del Libertador” on the tree shaded west side of the Avenida, enjoying the beautiful apartment buildings and watching the diligent porters... More
