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

We visited this park on 10th March, 2015. This is not a real Tourist spot. This is a place for local residents of Buenos Aires to relax, jog, hang around or simply enjoy the cool clime of BA. Spend an hour or so watching the activities of BA residents. You can see lot of dog walkers with 10-12 dogs of... More

Beautiful park to relax in or if you don't want to relax there are plenty of pedalos, bikes or skates to hire. Don't forget to get a choripan whilst there, too good to miss.

It's 400 hectares of nature, where you can enjoy of a great walk, camping or just chill out there in the grass. You can see a lot of people doing sports activities, also some groups playing or doing art. It has everything for everyone.

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.
