Parque Lezama, Buenos Aires
(3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Parque Lezama into our Buenos Aires vacation trip planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Good Park to expand and no children in the area. Spend walking to La Boca, and not called us much attention. Areas of ride, sports and some statue etc. A green lung in that area.

  • Large park very beautiful though poorly preserved, with wide area and playground for small children, well wooded, good for picnics and little flirtations or simply a walk as a family, I recommend

  • During weekends in Parque Lezama is common presentation of musical bands and street musicians. Also operate two fairs: one of crafts and other various products such as clothes, tools, food, etc.

  • My favorite park in Buenos Aires, even before it got all spruced up. This was Borges' favorite park, too, and if you believe him, some of the spirit of old Buenos Aires can still be felt here. This park marks the beginning of the plateau upon which the city sits, marks the spot of the first Spanish colonization, and looking south you can see both La Boca and Barracas. (If the buildings weren't here, you could see the Rio de la Plata.) I can't think of another spot in the city with a richer history. But relax, and have a mate, and curse those noisy wild parakeets!
  • Great sunny Sunday thing to do, especially if the San Telmo fair is too crowded and need some space to chill. Some good deals at the feria, but the historical old park and one of its benches is a favorite escape spot.
  • Beautiful park at the beginning of the San Telmo feria
  • Beautifull old park with a street maket on one of its sides
  • Una de las zonas más lindas para visitar en Buenos Aires, cerca también de Madero, se puede combinar para hacer un lindo paseo a pie o en bici.
