This is one of the oldest parks in the city of Buenos Aires, dating back to 1873. Although it has changed a lot since it´s inauguration (it used to have a lake), it is still one of the nicest parks within the city limits of the capital. The 1.6 KM cement path creates a perimeter around the park, which is open space covered in green grass.
The park is ideal for a picnic, or for anyone kids who want to play outside, or even for anyone wanting to kick around a ball. The park is always full of families, but also couples, young and old, who want to enjoy the sunshine. There are numerous playgrounds, which is another reason why there are so many families that attend Parque Saavedra. There is even a bocci ball court, frequented mostly by older men, strutting their stuff and fighting to become the day´s bocci champion.
On weekends, there is small fair with merchants selling everyday type goods (new and used) for low prices – books, clothes, soaps, toys etc. The park is located in the Saavedra barrio, which is right near the northern edge of capital federal. It is a charming, quiet neighborhood, and is worth walking around when you leave the park.
Bottom Line: A beautiful park with lots of green grass to relax on, located in one of Buenos Aires’s more attractive residential neighborhoods.
