  • Quite long ago said that it was one of the best parks in the country. Then it fell into oblivion but fortunately now it is recovering part of its aesthetic value. Designed by the famous French landscape architect Carlos Thays, is the main green space in the city of San Miguel de Tucumán. Its name evokes the independence exploits of our history. Since our country's independence was declared in this town. It was inaugurated on the centenary of our independence, back in 1916. Consists of many buildings within the Park: el Rosedal, the faculties of philosophy and literature, psychology, dentistry, Racecourse, the Municipal campsite, Tucumán Lawn Tennis Club, Equestrian Club, the Palace of sports, the beautiful Lake San Miguel) name in allusion to the name of our City - San Miguel de Tucumán. There is also a cute floral clock, the Casa del Obispo Colombres (current Museum of the sugar industry which is well worth a visit), the Municipal House of culture, the racetrack, the Faculty of physical education, etc. Apart from that there are beautiful bars with much room to outdoor activities and games for children, a train that runs through part of the Park, beautiful sculptures, not always valued by the Vintners, a beautiful Avenue named Avenida los Próceres with statues of Argentines illustrious, a sundial, fountains and beautiful gorgolas. We must remember to mention the most important hotels in the city are looking to this park. UNESCO is considering its possible recognition and inclusion as a world heritage for its cultural value. He knew how to be, each 9 July the stage of the ceremony and parade for the celebration of the independence day in which our city receives the presidential visit and is declared the Capital of the country for the day. A place to enjoy, alone or in company, morning or night, during common or festive days! Without emabrago, walk with care as any Park in the world because it has more unsafe than other areas.
