Parque Lezama, Buenos Aires

(3/5 based on 260+ 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 attractions, nice gardens, unique slopes. go for a walk or even a picnic (you may grab your lunch across the street) and have fun. it is huge. 
  • Linked to my childhood, I adore the Lezama Park. To been recently restored, being a place optimum to rest, walk or carry to them guys. Its amphitheatre, paths, sources, ravines, it converted in a zone very attractive. They surround him for example the British Bar (bar notable, historical), the Russian Orthodox Church, the Museum of history... It is situated in the southern part of the city, being conducive to combine their visit on Sunday with the feria de San Telmo, located in Plaza Dorrego, a few blocks.

  • A beautiful space of green color in a meadow of cement and history. Located at the convergence of three neighborhoods full of anecdotes and experiences. Is a great place to clear the mind and do exercise. If come to the dawn is a show that with difficulty will forget.

  • 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.
