  • It is a large square located in a densely populated place that is currently care and in a good state of maintenance. It possesses in the Center a statue of Simón Bolívar and a broad beach area which is used for skating, playgrounds, carousel, banks and wooded greenspace. On weekdays you can enjoy calmer as Saturdays and Sundays it is extremely crowded. On one of them side, separate from the Park by a grating is can visit a wide fair of buy and sale of books, CD and old disks of pasta. In this sector the positions are separated by narrow corridors and it found something dirty. On Sunday, in the other esrtemo of the square some positions of antiques are installed. Is a very nice Park that is worth the pena visit.

  • Is a nice Park, of size medium, beloved by all those who grew up there! This pretty good care. There are games for children, many green places for a picnic, benches, a mini track skid, sooooo many trees, famous fair of books and music, and carrousel. Too bad the mini lagoon empties and poorly maintained... would be nice that this full and with small fish like carp, resistant and beautiful. It is very nice to walk down there, see their trees, sit on a bench to watch and enjoy. This majestic monument to Simón Bolívar also. Nature in the city!

  • This large square is located in the geographical center of the city, on the Avenida Rivadavia before arriving at Jose M Moreno. It is a typical place to purchase sale of books used in their fairs. On Sundays it is also a place for lovers of the numismatics and other collectibles. There are also those who offer "piracy". It could be much better care, there are areas in which missing lawn.

  • It's the best park in all of Buenos Aires for kids. Why? It's big enough to allow for different spaces, yet small enough for the kids to be concentrated so they can play together. Much cleaner than almost ask other parks, lots of free activities, clowns and children's theater. A well maintained playground, and a big supermarket right across the street when it's time to buy juice or a snack. A parental dream spot!
  • Está cada día mejor.
  • a pretty large parque in the middle of the city. better without fences though....
  • Nice park for a walk. You could also find used books, vinyls, CDs and even antique toys.
  • Muy lindo!
