Parque Lezama, Buenos Aires

3.1
#9 of 40 in Parks in Buenos Aires
Head to Parque Lezama to mingle with locals away from the main tourist tracks. Though the park was once considered the city's founding site in 1536, archeological evidence has since contradicted this historical claim to fame. Nevertheless, the grounds boast several worthwhile points of interest, including a national history museum and a picturesque Russian church made entriely of materials from St. Petersburg. Challenge one of the old-timers who cluster around the outdoor tables to play chess, and see how your game stacks up against a wily opponent.

  • Buenos Aires is full of options for shows and tours. Always good between them relax a little activity in some Park or Woods. A great option is the Parque Lezama. Easy going and very good for walking.

  • The Park on weekends is very frequented by the residents of BA, is worth the trip, besides the stools provide a good rest. Tip: enjoy to take a taxi or uber leaving the Park and go up the little road, he is one of the points of interest not dangerous are closer to caminito.

  • Nicely maintained but at some hours feels unsecured. Could not see any guards ir police in the area.
  • Renewed park. Old city town. Nice during the day. Specially on weekends.
  • It's a very nice place with balconies from where you can appreciate the city
  • Historians believe the park's eastern barranca to have been the site of Spanish Conquistador Pedro de Mendoza's landing on what became the first, failed attempt to establish Buenos Aires in 1536.
  • This place is one of the oldest in Buenos Aires. indeed here was the funding place of the City. Highly recommended for tourists.
