  • The Saavedra neighborhood is on the edge of the Federal Capital with the suburbs, stuck to the Av. Gral. Peace. As a result, it is a very open area and Avenue, despite being a bit removed, enjoying wide trees, leafy, with the singing of the birds, which is much appreciated in the city.

  • Very large park in the District of Núñez. Weekends are filled with people drinking mate, haciedo sports, making picnic, playing the guitar, batucada, etc. For children and adults. In a sector there are also activities for retirees. On Sunday the touring of the City Government fair is where you can buy fruits and vegetables of good quality and affordable and is also the fair of the district.
