Buenos Aires parks

Wander around the streets of Buenos Aires and you’ll start to get a feel for the city’s French influence, most notable in the urban planning and landscape design. Lush green spaces are part of the city’s appeal, and enable visitors and locals alike to enjoy the climate and a little respite from busy city life. There is a Japanese garden, a garden that celebrates roses, a garden with a lake, gardens built around cemeteries and lots of other oases of green dotted around the city. Here are just a few parks in Buenos Aires worth exploring.

Bosques de Palermo

This 25-hectare park was designed at the end of the 19th century and contains a lake as well as Rosedal (Rose Garden), which infuses the park with the scent of roses during September. There is plenty of green grass for you to stretch out on beside the Planetarium, and the park offers pedal boats for rent if you want to head out onto the lake.

Reserva Ecologica Costanera Sur

Yes, Buenos Aires even has its own ecological reserve, encompassing 350 hectares of land where the financial district meets the Rio de la Plata. It is at its most quiet midweek, when you can kick off your shoes and hear nothing but birdsong. This is a popular spot for picnics, walks and bike rides and if you're lucky, you may even spot a river turtle.

Jardin Japones

The Japanese Garden of Buenos Aires is located right next to the suburb of Palermo, and gives you a little bit of zen in the middle of the city. If all that relaxation makes you peckish, you're in luck. The Japanese Garden has a restaurant within its midst, where sushi fans can get their fix.

Parque Lezama

Bordering the neighbourhoods of San Telmo and La Boca is Parque Lezama, new-landscaped green space toward the south of the city. It's the perfect location for a weekend picnic and the big bonus is that the San Telmo weekend market is close by. Parque Lezama has a weekend market of its own, so if you want some market time with a bit of nature thrown in, this is the place.
