Palermo Tourist: Parks in Buenos Aires

Palermo: Open Air / Aire Libre
It is the largest neighborhood in Buenos Aires, crossed by wide avenues full of luxurious houses, flower-gardens, woods and lakes. It was inaugurated in 1875 under the name of Parque Tres de Febrero (February Third Park) by decision of Domingo Faustino Sarmiento, president at that time. At the Zoo (photo) you can visit its latest addition: an ambitious display that re-creates the ecosystem of a South American rain forest. 


Plaza Italia (photo), a populated area next to the Zoo and Botanic Garden, can be used as a departure point to visit the woods. Tourists from abroad agree that Palermo is alike the French Bois de Boulogne in Paris. And they are right: Carlos Thays -the parisian woods' designer- took over the design of Palermo woods, the Botanic Garden and many parks in Buenos Aires.


In terms of landscape architecture Mr. Thays' imagination had no limits. Very wisely he calculated the trees height and the color of their flowers and leaves to obtain excellent picture compositions in the open air. 
That's why these paths make it an ideal place to visit for either your relaxing stroll or your scenic bike rides.
