We expected more, but not a bad experience overall. I think we had expectations of Brisbane or Rio, which it is def. not. If you have some extra time to kill, then go for about 2 hours or so to walk around. There are much better places to see in Buenos Aires, so if your a tourist with just a couple of days, don't bother. You could pass by the gardens for 2 hours and then go to the zoo which is next door. Difference is the gardens are free and the zoo is not. The fact that it is free might contribute to why it looks so run down. If it werent for so many mosquitos when we went, it would have been a nice place to sit down and bring a lunch.
