Have a Picnic

The best spot in town to have a picnic. Just get some cheese, bread and wine and have a nice time on the site. Cheep and pleasant program.

After hearing so much about the park, I was really disappointed yesterday when I took my brother for a visit. The lake had been drained for repairs and everything was a mess and the rubbish at the bottom of the lake was awful. Would definitely not recommend visiting until after repairs and clean up.

Perfect place for any occasion-to have a walk with a dog, enjoy family time, have a picnic, meet friends, do sports or just enjoy the sunshine.

So much going on here. Boat rides in the lagoon, art, fountains, birds, trees, golf, paths, by the rambala, the college is right off this Park. Centered in a safe and great neighborhood. Plenty to see here, art fairs on the week end, an amusement park with rides. Great old statues and cement work, surrounded by lots of Art Deco... More

I lived in Montevideo 10 months and this is my favourite place. There you can see local artists and ordinary people enjoying various sport activities such as walking on the rope/ribbon, joga, and if you are lucky you can see rope-climbing. You can join groups of people listening of candombe, playing the guitar, and drinking mate. You can come here... More

Parque Rodo is a huge park, which everyone loves. I can only add a tip, SUNSET. When the Sun begins to go down you will enjoy the view of the Rio de la Plata, the Rambla, the gardens and the beautiful combination of colours. Try to keep yourself in a high place, they are several but I recomend the view... More

I used to go with my kids. They have 2 parks, one for small kids and other for older o Es and even adults. If you are there you should try the CHURROS. They have plain ones and other filled with vanilla or chocolate. In USA you have some, like in Costco, but the ones in Uruguay are much better.

Parque Rodo is art of the hop on and off bus and the place is very nice. I would just say you are supposed to have more time in Montevideo to enjoy their parks more. Very well cared of and clean.

Parque Rodo is an extensive area of grass, trees and lakes close to La Rambla (the street along the waterfront) in Montevideo. Sometimes there are tourist markets on one side of it but at any time it is a good spot to picnic, sit and relax or birdwatch. We take one day cruise visitors there sometimes if they want to...
