    Place to visit if you're going to mendoza. The view is amazing to take pictures on a clear day, and without much heat. It is excellent.

    Great Park but now is under renovation. Missing complete paths for bikes and runners. The rise to glory Hill was neglected. But good, to enjoy the great outdoors it is worth. The Zoo looks closed but farm animals can be seen from the street.

    If you think in anything more gates, Park is already worth a visit. Gives you also the beautiful replica of the horses of Marly, its forestry heritage with more than 300 species originating in North America, Asia, Europe and Australia, planned down to the minimum detail (the forestation of the West side of the city allows the) fair humidification); your source of the continents (inspired by one of the gardens of Luxembourg), attributed to Lola Mora, its artificial lake, el Rosedal, pergolas, the Zoo, the majestic monument of the Cerro de la Gloria, the Greek Theatre Frank Romero Day, the University City, the World Cup Stadium Malvinas Argentinas, the Museum of natural sciences, its Aboriginal Park with native flora and more things to discover! Designed by the famous French landscape architect Carlos Thays, who managed to combine in this park of gardening of 19th-century English and French tradition. The history of its gates is very interesting. I recommend reading about it.

    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.

Where to stay in Mendoza

As the center of Argentina's wine industry, Mendoza offers plenty of conventional hostel and hotel options, as well as a good selection of short-term apartments for rent. Visitors taking language courses or spending several weeks on the wine route usually snatch these early in the tourist season (which lasts from mid-December to late-February), so it's a good idea to do some research and contact the owners before you arrive. Keep in mind that some of the town's hostels only offer beds to guests signed up for their wine tours.
