Trencito Del Parque 9 de Julio, San Miguel de Tucuman

(3/5 based on 50+ reviews on the web)
Ninth of July Park is the largest public park in the city of San Miguel de Tucumán, Argentina.History and overviewEconomic growth in the Argentine Northwest city of Tucumán, as in cities nationwide, created the need for unprecedented urban improvements during the late nineteenth century. The first public official to rally to this need was the Minister of Education of the Province of Tucumán, Alberto León Soldati, who in 1898 proposed the creation of an extensive green space such as those under development in Buenos Aires, Rosario and Córdoba, the nation's three largest cities. Tucumán's need for a modern recreational park was especially prescient, as the city was then still limited by a colonial grid of narrow streets and its relative isolation.Elected Senator for his province, Soldati commissioned the Parks Director for the city of Buenos Aires, French Argentine urbanist Charles Thays, to create a central public park for Tucumán. Thays drafted plans for a 400 hectare (1000 acre) green space to the east of the city, on which work began in 1906. Following the purchase of the remaining needed land, work accelerated on the project and the park was inaugurated on July 9, 1916, the centennial of the Argentine Declaration of Independence.

  • It is a beautiful walk in the Park July 9, the most important of the city. Very close to the Center. Very accessible. Very important: checking for working in the residence hotel.

  • With my daughter, through the Park, it is safe, quiet, slowly. I recommend it to tour and see the Park which is very large.

  • Love the park, there is so much to do and so much to see. I could easily spend my whole afternoon or two just walking around here.
  • Ok
  • Great place to walk in the morning and afternoon. Evil is the night, it is not convenient to go by little lighted places of the place. The municipality of Tucumán would have to invest more in the Park, cleaning, lighting and security. And removing people who stays the night within, that is the main reason why the Park becomes very unsafe. Place more security people that run through the area. And so the Park could be much more beautiful than it already is.

  • Quite careless in gral and unsafe in certain areas. The only thing better is the strip opposite the hotel. In this there are benches to sit, good lighting, nice decoration, well cared for green spaces and has 2 tracks of health with good turnout of people doing physical routines, walking, etc.
