This beautiful park makes up one of the bosques de Palermo, and is easily the most popular. The highlight of the park is the little island surround by a pretty lagoon, where you can rent a row boat or a paddle boat. The island itself is called El Rosedal, a very well kept rose garden with manicured lawns, paths, statues and fountains. The best time to visit is when all the roses are in bloom, which starts in the spring, and lasts for most of the summer.
The lagoon is surrounded by a long road, where you will find people doing all kinds of sports – walking, jogging, roller-blading, biking, playing roller-hockey (yes, roller hockey in Buenos Aires!), or just wandering around. The path is 1.7 km long, and is marked every 100M, making it a great place to go running. You can rent bikes and rollerblades, so those that don´t have their own can still take part in the activities.
There is also plenty of grass, so it is ideal to lie in the sun or have a picnic. The park is full of beautiful trees, including palm trees, and is very picturesque. Should you feel like eating something, the road is lined with parillas, and mini-kiosks.
If all of these weren´t reason enough to go, there is also the Eduardo Sivori museum with a little café in the back. The museum is usually free, although they will sometimes charge up to $2 pesos depending on what the exhibit is. The exhibits are always rotating, and are a combination of paintings, sculptures, and drawings, usually with a modern art style.
Bottom Line: One of the nicest parks in the city. If you want to spend some time in the sun, this is the place to go.
