  • Beautiful. Too big. Clean and organized. There's a beautiful river with a restaurant in front. Near the Centre. I walked to the Plaza of independence until there was quiet.

  • I am mendocino. I take pride in the Parque General San Martín that for more than one century gives us health, recreation and culture to local citizens and visitors, both foreigners and Argentines. It is worth to spend at least one day touring the Lake, forests and meadows and its attractions. Each one of them deserves a separate comment, as for example the monument to the army of the Andes in the Cerro de la Gloria, who appears in the photo, the source of the continents, the anthropological museum, the Greek Theatre and various sculptures that adorn its interior.

  • It would be good that put him a little attention to the roundabout of the Lake which banks are broken and the tiles damaged and outputs

  • A great place to get out of the hustle & bustle of the city. I recommend to visit the lake and have lunch at the North shore with this amazing view. Always be careful with your belongings. There's a lot more to see, better in a car with a guide.
  • One of the most beautiful parks I've ever seen. Very close to downtown and excellent to spend a day exercising or just hanging out with family and friends. Nice views and landscapes
  • Massive, don't underestimate your water needs... few sketchy spots too...
  • Beautiful walkways and well maintained. Lots of people walking, biking, jogging, or just enjoying the lazy pace within the park. Very safe during daylight hours.
  • Excellent for picnic day, trainning, etc., there is a beautiful golf course, a few minutes away from downtown, i totally recommend this place if you are looking for breathable clean air
