Parque Independencia is the most beautiful park in the entire city. It's a perfect afternoon taking a walk in the park and eating some lunch. There're multiple sale-stands in the park where you can buy food. You can also rent a cycling-boat to go on the lake where there're turtles, birds and fish that are nice to watch. Highly recommend...

This is a huge park with a nice walking path around a lake. You can rent paddleboats and go out on the lake, where you will see many turtles and birds. There are churro vendors and a small cafe with outdoor seating. We came with small children who loved feeding the ducks and pigeons. The park could use a bit... More

It’s a huge park at the end of La Rambla boulevard. We walked from the river up the boulevard to the park (about 15 blocks). It’s an interesting walk. When we came to the park we found a group practising Thai Chi, a piece of drift wood and some interesting wood carvings on dead trees (see my photos). Unfortunately we... More

This large park is worth the time. You can do many things. Ride a boat on the lake, watch a football (soccer) game on Sunday afternoon or just stroll around! There is also a nice botanical garden in the park! I spend at least two hours there and had a lot of fun watching the local people enjoying it with... More

This is a fantastic park with incredible sports facilities and museums and galleries. The layout is huge (as it is with most all of the city parks in Argentina) Easy to get to - excellent parking and a great picnic getaway opportunity.

I was expecting a lot more of this park... But actually there is just grass and buildings... Not even a few flowers, quite disapointing

One of the largest parks in Rosario. It is not that big though. I have seen larger parks in Buenos Aires. The park is an amazing place to sit and relax and watch all the tourists go by. Near by is the national monument for the flag.
