The Plaza was really hopping when we visited recently, especaially near the children´s play area and it was great to witness the children having such fun.Dogs were rushing abiout excitedly, too, while youths were tossing frisbees in a carefree way. There were benches upon which to sit and all in all it was awonderful, somnolent hour in the afternoon that we spent there.

In the very center of the city.the highlight is the fountain where ther are light shows at night. Open grassy space. There are benches but it is best to sit on the grass. Playground/amusement park in one corner. The Casino is across the road. Also cross and walk between the two buildings by th sea wolf statues to listen to the music and whatch the dancing.

Nice but poorly cared for

This square is one of the most beautiful squares in Mar Del Plata.
The major problem it has is that during the summer it is being used as a place of music recitals that leaves it very dirty.

Wonderful square in a key location

Impossible to miss it, the Plaza Colon is located in front of the Casino Provincial and the Bristol Beach. With relatively new fountains and a nice statue of the tango musician Astor Piazzola, it is a key part of a tourist visit to Mar del Plata.

A downtown square
Mar 2014 • Couples
Plaza Colon or Colon Square is just a square, with the advantage of its strategic location, is across from the Casino Buidling and near the San Martin Pedrestrian Main Street. It is better to go at night particularly if the program is to take a walk around the downtown area and play in the Casino, during the night he fountain get its music rythm operated lights, suitable to take pictures.
There many shops nearby.

Nice angles

Since it is not a squared square - has different shaped blocks - Plaza Colon offers different views of the Hotel/Casino, of the beach and other surrounding buildings. Walk by the main streets that croos the square.

In it`s six blocks real space, the expanded Plaza Colon offers some of the most characteristic photographs of Mar del Plata, specially including the Casino and the Hotel Provincial. Beware the thieves and pickpockets, and be extremely careful at night.
