Great for a walk thru

Pleasantly interesting and could stay for lunch but the crowd made it less charming. Lots of families because it was Sunday.

These are one of the most intricate Japanese gardens that one can experience when travelling in South America.

It is a beautiful, serene place to walk around. There were other visitors, but it wasn't crowded (although we visited in January, which I don't think is the height of the tourist season) and provided something different from the hustle-and-bustle of the city. Worth the visit!

This garden is a nice (but a bit costy, ticket = 70 AR$) option for those searching for a bit of relax in the city of Buenos Aires. Located 10' walk from the Museum of Latinamerican Art, it is really an oasis of peace, even though the proximity to the airport Aeroparque Newberry does not really allow a full relax... More

This Japanes Garden is very well kept, you can enjoy nature Japanese style. The Japanese Restaurant in the Garden is also worth a visit.

Everyone enjoys the atmosphere of this Japanese garden. Near museums and fancy neighbourhoods you stop and relax. Teenagers taking pictures. Ladies having tea. Families buying bonsai trees. Colours everywhere you go. It can be a little crowded on holidays.

If you like gardens, then do not miss these ones. However, be aware that if you visit in the summer time, it gets very very hot and there is not much shadow and spaces to sit.

if you have traveled at all, or your hometown has a botanical garden, and your pressed for time, don't do this. it's a once around the small park with some nice trees, poorly mainatined, with hundreds of koi. go have a long lunch instead.

Inexpensive - but there are lots of nice parks in Buenos Airies with no entrance charge. The park was absolutely packed with people. It was pretty with gardens and ponds filled with large koi. However, if you're expecting something really special, like intricate bonsai gardens, you'll be disappointed.

I lived in Japan for several years and really grew to appreciate what a Japanese garden is all about. When I saw this garden in BA, I was blown away with the sheer scale of it! Big and open, but somehow still "tight" and authentic.

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.
