  • I may park - Avda Alem and Calle Cordoba is one of green spaces and recreation more important city, located on the shores of the river Naposta. The main entrance is called Portal of the Park at the intersection of the Av. Alem and Córdoba.

  • The Park was created in 1906. It was originally called Municipal Park. It was built by private initiative. The accesses are very picturesque. It has many facilities, especially sports, although it also has an amphitheater, health track, other BMX, bike paths, playgrounds and an important artificial lake which can be enjoyed on boat rides. It may park extends to the edge of the Arroyo Naposta, at the point known as Bañado de Giménez. It is full of curved lines and winding and possesses a striking wooded landscape and a widespread tree planting. It has a European air. Monuments: to Colonel Ramón Bernabé Estomba: founder of the city. Made by the sculptor César Sforza, of granite of exceptional quality from Germany. It has four bas-reliefs. On the upper part, cast in bronze, stands the main sculptural group. Five figures, allegories of the union of the precursors, the gaucho, settlers, soldier and a woman, symbol of national protection, with a flag ("El Rodeo", "The dockers", "The conquest of the desert" and "Life jacket"). The founders: located on the street for access to the Park. Dating back to 1931. Syrian Lebanese: a unique pilar-reloj gift of that community. San Martin: first monument that was Bahia Blanca! Foundation plate: The origin of a name: in 1910 the then Municipal Park was baptized with its current name in homage to the centennial of the may revolution. Roman column and its mythical Wolf: work dating from 1978, year of the year of the sesquicentennial (150th anniversary founding of Bahía Blanca). Gift of the Italian community. Just José de Urquiza: he had his bust. It was stolen. And now a new one located at the intersection of Urquiza Avenida and calle Cordoba. There are also donated sculpture groups (known as sculptural group of Lola Mora), National University of the South in the Alem Avenue. Beautiful! To spend a long time in the shade of its trees. Excellent opportunities for photography lovers!
