Saavedra is a barrio (neighbourhood) of Buenos Aires, Argentina. It is located in the Northern end of the city, close to Belgrano and Villa Urquiza. Its northern border is Avenida General Paz. Among the main features of the neighbourhood is the Parque Saavedra (Saavedra Park), which has large picnic areas and sports facilities. Many inhabitants of Buenos Aires pass through Saavedra en route to their weekends in the country.The neighbourhood's most famous son is tango singer Roberto Goyeneche. Also, it was the cradle of Platense football club. The main characters of Adolfo Bioy Casares's novel El Sueño de los Héroes (Dream of Heroes) live in Saavedra.The interchange between the Pan-American Highway and Avenida General Paz is at Saavedra's northern end. Points south were the site of extensive demolition during the late 1970s tenure of military-appointed Mayor Osvaldo Cacciatore, who planned a network of new expressways including one through Saavedra, one of the city's most residential barrios. Never built, the demolished stretch was converted into Avenida Roberto Goyeneche. Saavedra is also home to an important Philips manufacturing facility, as well as the Dot Baires Shopping Center, the city's largest.

    I went to the Park Saavedra, for the second time in a year and found him with the same attractions as always (inflatable games, carousel and square for kids games), the craft fair and this time with a renewed running or cycling (new paths) place. ideal for a day, a sunny weekend.

    We went after noon Sunday. Sunny afternoon. There were many people and cost to find place for parking. The green space is large, so one can find their place without problem. Recommended to go with the guys, play sports, take a few mates, etc. There are kiosks in the surrounding area if you want to buy a drink or food, it can be mounted at the famous pochocleros distributed strategically, you can rent bikes and becomes a sort of train of the joy with characters for children (cost $40 ride of 30 mins, paying over 2 years).
