A friend recommended I visit the Japanese Gardens. It's a really lovely oasis in the city and beautifully manicured. It's only worth about an hour to wander around and check out the garden but it's a really lovely, calming place and very easy to get to.

A lovely part of the main park at the Centre of the city. Very well kept. They have a restaurant inside the park as well which is handy. Loads of branches to rest so you can bring your own take-away/packed lunch to have a nice break.

Beautiful little garden - doesn't take long to see the whole thing and only 70 pesos entry. Well worth a quick stop - was packed the day we went!

After learning that the botanical gardens and eco park were closed on Mondays, my family and I strolled over to the Japanese Garden to enjoy nice scenery and take a short afternoon break. I was under the impression that the park seemed smaller than I thought from the first time I visited. While the grounds were kept in immaculate order,... More

Easy to find and very calm ..... lots of water features to add to the calmness. The gardens are well maintained and their are plenty of staff to help you around. Not a massive place, but enough to see for an hour or so if you want to get away from the hassle and bustle.

Very small, not worth the AR$70 it charges for the entrance fee. It's beautiful, but you can skip it, if you find anything else interesting to do.

We visited the garden for a few hours. They are peaceful and very well maintained. Entrance costs AR $70 and there are very few benches to sit down.

This is a lovely garden to walk through and well worth the price. We enjoyed walking here for an hour or so and then had a very nice lunch overlooking the gardens. Well worth spending time here if you have some free time in the morning or afternoon during your trip.

Not sure it was worth the 70 pesos entry fee but it was a calm oasis in bustling Buenos Aires.Nice if you feel like refreshing.

The Japanese Garden's were lovely - but with all of the other free open air and green space in BA, you could save your money if you really wanted to without missing anything amazing. It was a nice stroll, very peaceful, but the rose gardens and other areas in the city offer the same thing.

Staying in Palermo

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.
