Had the chance to stay very close to the Bosques de Palermo, actually chose this place, because seating there in an autumn afternoon to read a book, equals to anything... just walk and walk and walk, is a beautiful park !

I use to go with a friend or my wife and walk for an hour. It´s very nice and plenty of sun and green. Trees, water, ducks. It´s free and I recommended it.

Great open space...perfect for running, jogging, walking or just watching and feeding the swans (probably geese). Exercise equipment is available, but you need to get there early....Also a little-known jewel of a museum - the Silvori - within the park featurig local artists and their works..which few tourists get to see Silvori has its own indoor and outdoor coffee shop...

This is a very nice large park filled with walking trails, plazas, and areas to workout. There are many people here taking advantage of the beautiful area, so it can be very busy with cars as well. We didn't get a chance to walk around, but drove through the whole park. I would recommend giving yourself at least 2-3 hours... More

This is a huge extension of lawn, water, rose gardens and other beauties that make this space a place to go with the family or on your own for a walk, to rent a boat or feed the geese. Although very popular with "porteños" it is so big that it doesn't feel overcrowded at all. There are a few places... More

This is a beautiful park to wander around. There are nice paths and interesting sculptures along the way. There is a beautiful lake with many swans and ducks. There are also paddleboats, however I did not see anyone in them, perhaps because it is now their winter. Many locals come to this park to jog. There is also a beautiful... More

If you wanna have a quiet afternoon on a sunny day, it is always nice to have a walk or a picnic at the park. Nothing to special about it but it is certainly confortable, specially when it's not too crowded (on school holidays).

When I arrived in B. A. in april 2015 I asked a little to the hotel people about the nice places to see in town. They suggested a few ones as B.A. is quite a big city. So I took the subway and got there shortly after. Palermo is one of the upscale sectors of Buenos Aires so you can... More

Nice gardens and squares for morning walks. The Japanese garden is paid, unfortunately. The Rose Garden is a must see.

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.
